Our next film: The Lodger

lodgerOur next film, on Thursday 1 November at 19:45, is a special event. The Lodger, Alfred Hitchcock’s silent crime drama from 1927, will be shown with live music from Minima, a four-piece group specialising in film accompaniment.

The director himself described The Lodger as “the first true Hitchcock film”, meaning it was the first of his movies to deal with murder and detection. A mysterious stranger, played by Ivor Novello, comes to lodge with a London family just as the hunt for a serial killer of young women is at its height.
