   This month at the Regent Square Theater, a single-screen neighborhood theater in the region, and featuring a Sunday night classic film series, they are honoring the iconic work of Alfred Hitchcock. Each month is organized by era, genre, director, actor, or other connected themes, with a screening usually at 8p. Here’s the March lineup:


~ THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (March 10th) – This version starring Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day is a remake – in widescreen and Technicolor – of Hitch’s original 1934 film.

~ VERTIGO (March 17th) – One of Hitch’s most debated films, this psychological mystery has actually gained more acclaim over the years. Overall, it’s a beautifuly stunning piece of cinema.

~ NORTH BY NORTHWEST (March 24th) – It’s not just the cleverly written script about mistaken identity, a suspenseful climb over Mt. Rushmore, or the thrilling Bernard Herrmann score that helps make this a favorite Hitchcock motion picture.

~ MARNIE (March 31st) – In this psychological thriller, this minor classic is buoyed by the driving musical score of Bernard Herrmann – his last for Hitchcock.
