[Press release from Cleveland Cinemas.]
On December 7th, FOX Searchlight Pictures opens its film HITCHCOCK at the Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.). Starring Oscar-winners Anthony Hopkins as the legendary “Master of Suspense” and Helen Mirren as his wife Alma Reville, HITCHCOCK tells the story of the director’s struggle to get his masterpiece PSYCHO made as well as explores his complicated relationship with the woman he loved.
In anticipation of the opening of HITCHCOCK, Cleveland Cinemas is presenting four of the master filmmaker’s most famous films at four of its area locations.
DIAL M FOR MURDER (in 3D)

Alfred Hitchcock's screen version of Frederick Knott's stage hit Dial M for Murder is a tasty blend of elegance and suspense. Grace Kelly, Ray Milland and Robert Cummings are the points of a romantic triangle. Kelly loves Cummings and her husband Milland plots her murder. But when he dials a Mayfair exchange to set the plot in motion, his right number gets the wrong answer - and gleaming scissors become a deadly weapon. Originally shot in 3D in 1954, this showing is presented from a new digital 3D print from Warner Bros.
