Monday March 18th at 7:30pm
Celebrated for the macabre, tour-de-force plots and sublime twist endings that would come to define the very genre of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock is one of cinema’s greatest auteurs, his career spanning six decades and over sixty films. Based on Joseph Conrad’s The Secret Agent and starring Oscar Homolka and Sylvia Sidney, Sabotage is one of Hitchcock’s most significant pre-war British films.
Karl Verloc, manager of a London cinema, is secretly involved with a gang of European saboteurs who are plotting a massive bomb attack in Piccadilly Circus. With the police already suspicious of Verloc, they place an undercover detective on his trail can he bring the saboteurs to justice before they perpetrate their outrage on London?
