Hitchcock's 'Rear Window' returns to theaters
Rear Window, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller about an injured and restless photojournalist-turned-voyeur who suspects one of his neighbors of murder, will return to movie theaters for two days in March.
Turner Classic Movies, Universal, and Fathom Events will re-introduce a digitally re-mastered version of the film in nearly 600 movie theaters on March 22 and March 25. TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz will host a special introduction that will precede 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. screenings of the film, which famously stars Jimmy Stewart as the wheelchair-bound L.B. Jeffries who spends his recovery staring at his apartment-courtyard neighbors through a pair of binoculars. Thelma Ritter and Grace Kelly co-star as his nurse and girlfriend, respectively, and Raymond Burr is the surly neighbor who Jeff becomes convinced has murdered his wife in cold blood. The 1954 film, which won exactly zero Oscars and was not nominated for Best Picture nor Best Actor, is now considered one of the all-time classics and is ranked No. 48 on AFI’s most recent Top-100 movies list.
Tickets can be ordered at Fathom Events. “Rear Window is the ultimate thriller from Hitchcock, and there is no better way to view it than on the big screen with fellow film lovers,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey.
