North by Northwest is a 1959 American thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Cary GrantEva Marie Saint and James Mason.  The screenplay was by Ernest Lehman, who wanted to write “the Hitchcock picture to end all Hitchcock pictures”.

North by Northwest is a tale of mistaken identity, with an innocent man pursued across the United States by agents of a mysterious organization trying to prevent him from blocking their plan to smuggle out microfilm that contains government secrets.

This is one of several Hitchcock films that features a music score by Bernard Herrmann and an opening title sequenceby graphic designer Saul Bass.  This film is generally cited as the first to feature extended use of kinetic typography in its opening credits.

As usual, UGT technician and film buff Chris Leach will take pleasure in give a short upbeat powerpoint presentation before this film and enthusing about the movie, and what the star actors and crew did in their careers and lives.

As the film is 136 minutes long there will be a short comfort break inserted around halfway through the screening.

The cinema is set in traditional and table style, allowing you to take drinks and food in with you to enjoy at leisure throughout the film.
