Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak get entangled in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1958 film “Vertigo.”

Short run brings ‘Vertigo’ to cinema

Intrigue and crippling anxiety make Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo suspenseful enough, but adventuresome camera work and standout performances by Jimmy Stewart as Scottie Ferguson and Kim Novak as the icy blond leading lady make the 1958 thriller a masterpiece.

Vertigo, which screens Sunday and Wednesday, is the final film in the summertime Cinemark classic series.

Scottie is a retired cop stricken with acrophobia. He begins following the wife of a close friend and discovers she is keeping secrets.

Screenings are at 2 p.m. Sunday and 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesday.

The cinema is located at 2825 Wind River Lane. Matinee tickets cost $6.50. For evening screenings, tickets cost $8.50 for adults, $6.50 for children, seniors and students.
