“Alfred Hitchcock: A 9-Film Masterclass in Suspense” will feature iconic classics Psycho, North by Northwest, Rear Window and more

BETHLEHEM, Pa. – This August, the ArtsQuest Center’s Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas will be hosting our annual Hitchcock Birthday series with a supersized event, “Alfred Hitchcock: A 9-Film Masterclass in Suspense.”

The series, which will take place from August 18-22 and 25-26, will cover the wide scope of his fascinating filmography featuring gems rarely seen in theaters and classics that demand big screen treatment – from Hitchcock’s silent film often declared the first “true Hitchcock film” to a light-hearted comedy with Hitch’s wicked sense of humor sprinkled in. There will be something for every true Hitchcock fan.

“Hitchcock made over 50 films across six decades and so many of them have reached classic status. How many other filmmakers can reach that feat?” said ArtsQuest Cinema & Comedy Specialist Anthony DeSanctis. “We are thrilled to be able to present this particular lineup – double the size of past years’ lineups – as I feel this is the first time the series covers all that Hitch was. If you’re coming to all nine films, you get to see him progress and truly earn his ‘Master of Suspense’ title.”
