Hitchcock Returns to Rapid City
The ninth annual Nostalgia Night film series opens Sunday, Jan. 12, at the Elks Theatre with Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece, “Rear Window.” The classic thriller stars James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Thelma Ritter and Raymond Burr.
First released in 1954, “Rear Window” was Hitchcock’s 40th film and his final and most successful one-set film. The film was one of five “lost” Hitchcock films that were unavailable for nearly 30 years due to a film rights dispute. Rereleased in 1983, the film was nearly lost forever due to physical deterioration. In 1995, a restoration project was undertaken and after three painstaking years of work, in 1998, the film once again became available.
Nostalgia Night is an annual series of 10 weekly films presented by The Friends of the Devereaux Library at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, in cooperation with the Elk Theatre. Other films being show this year are “Mister Roberts,” “Father of the Bride,” “Too Hot to Handle,” “Meet Me in St. Louis,” “Sergeant York,” “The Quiet Man,” “An Affair to Remember,” “Sunset Boulevard” and “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.”
All films begin at 6 p.m. Season ticket books are available for $30 at Prince and Pauper Bookshop, The Devereaux Library at South Dakota Tech,and the Elks Theatre. Ticket for individual films will be available at the door on a space available basis the evening of the show for $4.50 each.
