Is Vertigo really the best film ever?
Why is the movie free at the Strand Theatre this Saturday, August 20?
Instead of asking us these questions, come to the Strand and see for yourself.
In 2012 Vertigo, Alfred Hitchcock's classic tale of obsession, replaced Citizen Kane as the Best Film ever made in the once-a- decade poll conducted by Sight and Sound magazine. It has been recently restored, and the Strand is presenting it free this Saturday, August 20 at 7 PM
Long considered a masterpiece, Vertigo stars Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak as a private eye and the woman he is hired to follow. But nothing, as they say, is as it seems.
Love, obsession, betrayal, death...To the hypnotic, lush music of Bernard Herrmann, their dreamlike story plays out in and around San Francisco, one of America's most exotic cities.
If you've never seen Vertigo, you need to; if you have, you will be surprised how great it looks and sounds.
And, it's free... at the Strand in downtown Vicksburg

The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble , the latest film from the creators of the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom and the critically-hailed Best of Enemies , follows an ever-changing lineup of performers drawn from the ensemble's more than 50 instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, arrangers, visual artists and storytellers as they gather in locations across the world, exploring the ways art can both preserve traditions and shape cultural evolution.
