Alfred Hitchcock was indeed a film mastermind but his meticulous attention to every detail also demonstrates his design mastery of modernist architecture, graphic design, interior design, and product design. We therefore very appropriately kick off MADWEEK 2018 at Modesto’s historic State Theatre with an iconic cinematic and design masterpiece, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic, North by Northwest (1959), starring Eva Marie Saint and Cary Grant.
Modesto Film Society board member Randy Siefkin will introduce the film, previewing the architectural elements Hitchcock incorporated, including the modernistic mountain top retreat of the film’s villain Phillip Van Damm (James Mason).
Time: Doors open at 1:30pm. Movie starts at 2pm.
Tickets: General admission is $8, with a discount for State Theatre members.
