So many of you expressed disappointment over missing last year's Valentine's Day screening of Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo in 70mm that we decided to bring it back.

Jimmy Stewart stars as a retired cop hired to follow a friend’s wife (Kim Novak) who is obsessed with a woman who committed suicide a century earlier. But Scottie (Stewart) ends up falling in love with Madeline (Novak), really falling for her. Filled with all the elements that make a Hitchcock film great—intrigue, psychological drama, and, of course, a surprise ending—it is regarded as one of his finest films. Vertigo is a film that only improves with repeated viewings, don’t miss your chance to see it again in 70mm. (128 mins., 70mm)
