White Wall Cinema's Socially Distanced Summer Screen presents



DIRECTOR: Alfred Hitchcock

STARRING: James StewartJohn Dall and Farley Granger.

More than six decades before movies like Birdman and 1917 were showing us the wonder of the "single take movie", the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock was already using the technique to astonishing effect in his legendary cinematic experiment Rope. A deliciously dark and devious tale of two Harvard graduates who believe they have planned the perfect murder, Hitchcock's Rope is as much a technical marvel as it is a fantastically fun macabre game of cat and mouse. Enhanced by cracking performances from it's stars (including Jimmy Stewart) and it's daring homo-erotic subtext, it's a rare chance to see this overlooked masterpiece on the big screen.

DOORS: 7.30pm*


RUN TIME: 80 mins

CERT: PG (under 15's must be accompanied by and adult)

LOCATION: Fig Tree Garden at Wagner Hall (Regency Road, Brighton)
