The Lodger

Part of our Cinema Studies program

Featuring live piano accompaniment

When a landlady and her husband take in a new lodger, they’re overjoyed: He’s quiet, humble and pays a month’s rent in advance. But his mysterious and suspicious behavior soon has them wondering if he’s the killer terrorizing local blonde girls. Their daughter, Daisy, a cocky model, is far less concerned, her attraction obvious. Her police-detective boyfriend, in a pique of jealousy, seeks to uncover the lodger’s true identity.

Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog will be accompanied by a lecture from Jeff Hughes, graduate student in the Cinema Studies department at NYU Tisch.

"One for Hitch fans, one for thriller fans, one for cinema fans. Do not miss."
Wally Hammond, Little White Lies
