San Francisco Symphony brings Hitchcock's spy thriller to life!

Why See San Francisco Symphony - North By Northwest?

Spies, crop dusters...and live music!

The Master of Suspense returns to the stage! Alfred Hitchcock's now iconic spy thriller is given the Symphony orchestra treatment in San Francisco at this very special screening. Starring Cary Grant, Eva-Marie Saint and James Mason, the thrilling suspense will be played on-screen above the stage, whilst Bernard Hermann's heart-stopping score is played live on stage by the Symphony. It's so real, you'll be ducking from the crop duster in your seat!

Preserved in 1995 at the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress, North By Northwest was one of Hitchcock's biggest movie successes in 1959, immediately preceding his horror, Psycho. Spies, kidnapping, assassination, and a beguiling femme fatale make this one of the Hollywood studio system's biggest hits.
