Rooftop Film Club: Vertigo
On of Hitchcock's finest films?
Picture this: you are watching a great film. You have some great food and your favourite drink, be that a pint or a cocktail. You are on a rooftop. There are panoramic views of the city and the sun is setting. Everything is good; life is great. Sound like a dream? Well, thanks to Rooftop Film Club, it ain't no more. The Bussey Rooftop Bar & Kitchen is open from 6pm so please join us early to enjoy our yummy food, delicious cocktails and magnificent 360º panoramic views of London. For this one, get ready for Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 thriller, Vertigo. Originally dismissed when first released, Vertigto was later heralded as one of Hitchcock's finest films – and, in the director's own words, his most personal one. Expect plenty of thrills in this tale of love, loss and human comfort. "Hitchcock's rich and strange fable of love lost, and lost again, makes the case for him as a grand experimental artist." – Slant Magazine "It's as much a wonder of suspense as it is a catalogue of the director's themes and an allegory for his own art of enticement." – New Yorker Certificate: PG. Runtime: 2 hour 3 minutes. Over 18s only. The Bussey Rooftop Bar & Kitchen is open from 6pm. Headphones and blankets can be collected at the box office. Please note that blankets are available on a first come, first served basis.
"Hitchcock's most tender story."
