Alfred Hitchcock's The Lodger (PG)
With Live Accompaniment by Cyrus Gabrysch
This restoration of Hitchcock's 1926 silent drama offers a gripping prehistory not just of his own work, but the Hollywood thriller itself. Ivor Novello plays the lodger, living in a boarding house in London where people are terrified of a serial killer called the Avenger who murders young blondes. The lodger is a strange, tortured figure whose neurotic sensitivity and vulnerability begins to entrance the landlady's pretty daughter Daisy, who is being courted by Joe, a police detective on the killer's trail. But might not this lodger, with his mysterious nighttime excursions, be the killer himself?
