Rear Window Screening at LACMA. Let's get artsy!
Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 movie Rear Window is on the outside a thriller about a wheelchair-bound photographer and his gorgeous girlfriend becoming entranced by his view into the neighbor's windows, but Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly play these parts with bravado. The view from Stewart's window becomes a screen that allows him to sit in the darkness and quietly observe the tenants from the comfort of his seat, looking through the lens of his camera like we see through the filmmaker's lens.
I won't tell you how it ends, but you'll want to be at LACMA tomorrow (7/12) at 1:00 PM to find out. And guess what? Admission is only $2! Only $1 for senior citizens, who I don't think read my blog, but if you do then pull out a crisp dollar bill from your grandson's birthday card and tell him to suck it, cause you've got a date with Hitchcock.
LACMA: 5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90036
