Friday January 26 – Thursday February 1

Featured Film:

Hitchcock at the Ark Lodge Cinemas

With the Oscar nominations out, the theatres are packed with contenders, many of which have already been playing for several weeks, some of which are back on Seattle Screens (like The Florida Project, also at the Ark Lodge). That means pickings are slim for repertory this week. There’s the Children’s Film Festival at the Northwest Film Forum, or a nice double feature of The Fits and Polina at the SIFF Film Center, or even Wild Strawberries at SAM, if you’re a fan (I am not). But it’s hard to top the pair of Psycho and The Birds at the Ark Lodge, part of the series of Hitchcock masterpieces they’ve been playing all month long. And as a special treat, Thursday night only they’re showing his (literally) atmospheric and creepy silent The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog.
