I’m related by blood to the Alfred Hitchcock family, but I’ve never seen a full Hitchcock movie until now. (My first cousin married into the family and they had children – so that’s my link. Fun trivia.)
Consolidated Theatres is now showcasing some of the most iconic films from Sir Alfred Hitchcock in a special Hitchcocktober celebration. Every Tuesday at 7 p.m. throughout the month of October, audiences will be treated to landmark movies from the Master of Suspense at Kahala Theatres. The screening series will end on Halloween, with presentations of Psycho at both Kahala and ‘Ōlino Theatres.
“No one delivers thrills quite the way Hitchcock does,” said another cousin of mine (it’s a coincidence this blog is a little nepotistic), Lindsey Chun-Hori, director of marketing for Consolidated Theatres. “We’re excited to enable audiences to experience his genius on the big screen—and at the perfect time of year for a suspenseful cinema treat!”
Hitchcocktober features a lineup of unforgettable stories with legendary stars, including Cary Grant, Eva Marie Saint, Ingrid Bergman, James Stewart, Kim Novak, Joan Fontaine, Laurence Olivier, Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh. The schedule is as follows, with tickets to all screenings priced at $10 each:
Oct. 3 – North by Northwest
Oct. 10 – Notorious
Oct. 17 – Vertigo
Oct. 24 – Rebecca
Oct. 31 – Psycho (also at ‘Ōlino in Kapolei, presented in TITAN LUXE)
Last night, I went to see North by Northwest. It was so good! (Duh, Diane, that’s why Hitchcock is filmmaking royalty?) Why haven’t I seen it before? It was amazing with so many great twists and suspense!
I do have to say, though, that Cary Grant is awkward in the love scenes. He embraces Eva Marie Saint and has his hands up in the air. Also, in the train kissing scene, he puts his hands by her head but not on it – to not mess up her hair? I might get skewered for this from hardcore fans. Oh well.
