The Hope College Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland is continuing its tradition of showing contemporary and independent films through its 2013 winter film series.
"Hitchcock,” running Monday-Saturday, Jan. 28-Feb. 2, is a drama about legendary director Alfred Hitchcock, and his wife, Alma, during the filming of Hitchcock’s masterpiece, “Psycho.” Forced to self-finance the film, Hitchcock’s creative wife tires of the strain and his roving eye when it comes to actresses, creating tension in the marriage. The story behind one of the greatest films of all times is nearly as fascinating as the film itself.
Featuring two Academy Award-winners in the main roles, Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren, the film is winning critical praise. The filmis rated PG-13 and will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $6 for regular admission and $5 for senior citizens, Hope College faculty, and children.
