Hitchcock-tober unveils 9 digitally remastered masterworks

Nothing you see in a San Diego movie theatre all year could possibly come close to matching the experience of Hitchcock on the big screen. Away with Blu-ray! For the first time in its history, Reading Cinemas annual Hitchcock-tober celebration is going all DCP. That's right, digitally remastered copies of 9 of the Master's greatest tales.

None

At $7 a seat, it's a bargain at twice the price. If you have never seen Shadow of a Doubt, or North By Northwest, or any of these films for that matter, it's time to climb back on the turnip truck. If your memories of these titles abound with images of scratchy prints or fuzzy video copies, it's time for a serious reevaluation. Hitchcock, perhaps more than any other director, works best with an audience. Even if you know where the jumps occur in Rear Window, it's always fun to watch the newbies bounce around the theatre.

Thanks to Reading Cinema's Ms. Deering for retiring the video discs. Please repay the kindness by supporting the program and packing both the Reading's Gaslamp and Town Square Cinemas. And remember, it's back to business as usual with 3 free hours of parking at Horton Plaza.
