North by Northwest involves an innocent man enmeshed in a sinister plot.  Cary Grant plays an advertising executive kidnapped in the middle of a client meeting at the Plaza Hotel, and plunged into a series of improbable and, for the audience, highly enjoyable adventures.  Who can forget the great Mt. Rushmore scene! Shown in a new digital restoration!

“Hitchcock’s sleek, wry, paranoid thriller caught the 50s zeitgeist perfectly: Cold War shadiness, secret agents of power, urbane modernism, the antlike bustle of city life, and a hint of dread behind the sharp suits of affluence.” (Time Out)
