Prytania Theatre revives Hitchcock masterpiece North By Northwest

Posted By on Fri, Mar 30, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Filmmaking genius Alfred Hitchcock once said that his 1959 gem North By Northwest "summarizes" his "American period" of the 1940s and '50s. We sometimes like to think of it as the only perfect movie ever made. Starring Cary Grant as a mild-mannered New York advertising executive who gets swept into international espionage in an unlikely case of mistaken identity, North By Northwest seamlessly blends suspense, humor, and satire like no other film, from any era. Its technicolor glory is best experienced on the big screen, like the one at the Prytania Theatre, 5339 Prytania Street uptown in New Orleans. The Prytania will offer three noon showings of North By Northwest over the next several days: Saturday, March 31, Sunday, April 1, and Wednesday, April 4.
