FILM: Rear Window

Monday, Dec. 1



The Main Library's fall film series "Manhattan in the 1950s" continues with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 classic, Rear Window. The Master of Suspense offers a sly commentary on the voyeuristic nature of cinema, as we watch as a photographer (James Stewart) and his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) spy on his neighbors in an apartment complex. Matters take a turn for the macabre, however, after the cameraman believes he witnessed one of his neighbors (Raymond Burr) murder his wife. Looking ahead, the series concludes Dec. 15 with the 1958 supernatural comedy Bell, Book and Candle, starring Stewart, Kim Novak and Jack Lemmon. Free admission. 7 p.m. Wachovia Playhouse, ImaginOn, 300 E. 7th St. 704-973-2780.
