The Hitchcock 9 at LACMA

The Hitchcock 9

 

In partnership with the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, LACMA is proud to be the Los Angeles venue for this monumental touring series that presents, for the first time ever, all nine of Alfred Hitchcock’s surviving silent films in gorgeous new digital restorations from the British Film Institute. This series includes Hitchcock’s directorial debut—The Pleasure Garden, made when he was just 25—as well as beloved masterworks such as the expressionistic The Lodger and his seminal thrillerBlackmail. The series tracks how Hitchcock’s style developed over three short yet productive years as he transitioned from an UFA-steeped upstart to a world-class British auteur. Launching with the little-seen seaside melodrama The Manxman—featuring a new score written and performed by Stephen Horne—The Hitchcock 9 is a rare opportunity to experience the fascinating evolution of a cinematic genius.

Special support provided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. 

The Hitchcock 9 is a joint venture of the BFI, Rialto Pictures/Studiocanal, and Park Circus/ITV.
