Fa­mous Hitch­cock Film Cel­e­brates Ar­chi­tec­ture

The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS -

The Modesto Film So­ci­ety in­au­gu­rates this year’s Modesto Ar­chi­tec­ture and De­sign (MAD) week cel­e­bra­tion with a screen­ing of Al­fred Hitch­cock’s clas­sic North By North­west, show­ing on Sun­day, Sept. 16 at 2 p.m., at Modesto’s his­toric State Theatre.

Di­rec­tor Hitch­cock demon­strates his mas­tery of de­sign in this thriller in which ar­chi­tec­ture plays a key role. Cary Grant plays Roger Thorn­hill, an ad­ver­tis­ing ex­ec­u­tive kid­napped by a gang of spies led by Philip Van­damm (James Ma­son). Grant is drawn into a cross coun­try es­pi­onage plot in which he is tar­geted by both the spies and the gov­ern­ment. The glam­orous Eve Ken­dall (Eva Marie Saint), who seems to know more than she lets on, aids Grant in his quest for truth.

Gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets are $8, and may be pur­chased on line or at The State Theatre box of­fice, week­days, noon to 4 p.m. More in­for­ma­tion about the film or MAD week ac­tiv­i­ties may be ob­tained by con­tact­ing www.thes­tate.org, www. modestode­sign.org., or call­ing The State Theatre at 527-4697.

The theatre is at 1307 J St., Modesto.
