In celebration of the 60th anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo,” Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Universal Pictures will bring the classic film to select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, March 18, and Wednesday, March 21.

Considered one of Hitchcock’s greatest cinematic achievements, “Vertigo” is a dreamlike thriller from the Master of Suspense. Set in San Francisco, the film creates a dizzying web of mistaken identity, passion and murder after an acrophobic detective (James Stewart) rescues a mysterious blonde (Kim Novak) from the bay and must unravel the secrets of the past to find the key to his future.

Appearing as No. 11 on IMDb’s list of the Top 100 Greatest Movies of All Time, the film will also feature an exclusive commentary from TCM host Eddie Muller, who will give insight into this classic film. Participating movie theaters in our neck of the woods include AMC Loews Stony Brook 17, 2196 Nesconset Highway, Stony Brook at 2 and 7 p.m. on both days; and Farmingdale Multiplex Cinemas, 1001 Broadhollow Road, Farmingdale and Island 16 Cinema de Lux, 185 Morris Ave., Holtsville on March 18 at 2 p.m. and March 21 at 7 p.m. To purchase your ticket in advance, visit www.fathomevents.com.
