Alfred Hitchcock double-bill at St George’s Guildhall as part of King’s Lynn film festival
Lynn is bringing you a double thriller for its film festival later in the month.
Lynn Festival will feature an Alfred Hitchcock double-bill, as part of the town’s Film Festival, on Thursday, November 23 at St George’s Guildhall.
Among the most celebrated, imitated, and beloved directors of the 20th century, Alfred Hitchcock is widely seen as the father of the thriller.
He made his name as a director with his first thriller The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog (Cert. PG) in 1927.
In this silent film, London is being terrorised by a Jack the Ripper-style murderer, ‘The Avenger’, who targets young blonde-haired women.
Minima is one of the leading bands accompanying silent films in Europe. They perform their 2014 score alongside a screening of The Lodger at 7.30pm on Thursday, November 23.
Tickets for The Lodger are £15 (50% off for under 25s) and are available from Lynn Corn Exchange Box Office on 01553 764864 or online at www.kngslynnfestival.org.uk.
Before The Lodger at 1pm there is a chance to see the 2022 richly illustrated documentary, My Name is Alfred Hitchcock (Cert. 15).
A fictional Hitchcock narrates an explanation of some of the lesser-known cinematic techniques he used in his movies, in a film which features clips from his entire 50-year career.
Tickets for My Name is Alfred Hitchcock are £6 and are also available from Lynn Corn Exchange Box Office.
Both screenings are part of the Lynn Film Festival which runs from Thursday to Sunday, November 23 to 26, and are presented in partnership with Lynn Community Cinema Club.
Members of Lynn Community Cinema Club receive a discount for both events.
