DIAL M FOR MURDER IN 3-D

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Starring Grace Kelly and Ray Milland

(1954) Flat-broke Ray Milland, jealous of rich wife Grace Kelly’s friendship with Robert Cummings, plans the perfect murder. And, despite an errant pair of scissors, things look good... until the arrival of Inspector John Williams. 3-D turns the viewer into a voyeuristic accomplice, as only the Master could have planned. DCP. Approx. 105 mins.
2:20*, 6:05, 9:50

Dial M for Murder has a romping plot, a gloriously slimy villain and – thanks to the fact that (as in Rope before and Rear Window after) the action is mostly constrained to one room – some of the weirdest, trickiest camera work of Hitchcock’s career.”
– The Guardian

“Among the most PURELY ENJOYABLE features the director ever helmed!”
– Slant

“The film is confined almost entirely to a cramped apartment set—a constricted space that takes on a highly expressive quality in the picture’s original 3-D version.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

“This sharp 3D restoration is a cool refresher for audiences weary of seeing the technology applied to mutants and doomsday scenarios.”
– Guy Lodge, Time Out New York

“By far THE MOST VISUALLY COMPELLING of studio stereoscopic movies.”
– J. Hoberman, Village Voice

HOUSE OF WAX IN 3-D

Starring Vincent Price

(1953, André de Toth) Mad sculptor Vincent Price – aided by mute henchman Charles Buchinsky (later, Bronson) – re-populated his Victorian Chamber of Horrors with wax-coated victims. And wouldn’t Carolyn Jones (TV’s Mortician Adams) make a lovely Joan of Arc? Watch out for that vat of boiling wax! DCP. Approx. 88 mins.
12:30, 4:15, 8:00

 “The effects are done with playfulness, zest, and some imagination (they range from a barker batting paddleballs in your face to a murderer leaping from the row in front of you), making this the most entertaining of the gimmick 3-Ds.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
