Vertigo (PG) - 8PM
USA 1958 | Colour | 128 mins | Cert PG | Thriller

John ‘Scottie’ Ferguson (Stewart) leaves the police force after a harrowing roof-top chase that leaves him with acrophobia. Months later he is hired to investigate the bizarre behaviour of his friend’s wife; Madeleine Elster believes that she is possessed by the spirit of her ancestor, Carlotte Valdes. After rescuing Madeleine from drowning, Ferguson begins to fall for her and is determined to solve the mystery. However, a surprise is in store for him when they visit the Mission San Juan Bautista.

For this remarkable film we are joined by Guest Speaker Graham Barnfield, who will introduce the film and then lead a panel discussion after it.
