Lone Star Film Society’s ArthouseFW and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth partner up for another special project.

This next film series will appeal to classic movie buffs, film historians and Alfred Hitchcock fans alike. This film series features six great Alfred Hitchcock’s films. Two of these are silent films with live musical performances.

Alfred Hitchcock is a cinematic genius in many respects. His nickname of “The Master
of Suspense” is well earned. His films are psychological thrillers, engaging the audience not only through the suspense of the story but also the film angles he utilizes.
