Showtime is 8 p.m., with admission just $5, and a variety of snacks and drinks available for cheap.
The PFS hosts its first-ever event at The Space Station, the new meeting hall and concert space adjacent to Starlandia Art Supply in the increasingly popular Starland District (on Bull Street between 37th Street and Victory Drive). For this initial film event, they’ll present iconic British filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock’s immensely respected 1935 mystery thriller “The 39 Steps,” starring Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll.
The first “talkie” Hitchcock ever directed, this tale of a man and a woman thrust together by circumstance on the run from a group of evil secret agents is still as powerful today as it was almost a century ago. The prototype for a number of other Hitchcock films to follow, “The 39 Steps” firmly established Hitchcock as “the master of suspense,” and numerous sequences in this movie have been copied or adapted for an untold number of thrillers worldwide ever since. No less than the British Film Institute ranked it as the fourth best British film of the entire 20th century.
