Halloween is my favorite holiday, and while my appetite for consuming vast quantities of candy and braving the streets of the West Village during the Halloween parade may be dwindling as the years go by, I still love the opportunity to get properly freaked out by a masterfully-directed creepy movie. All month long, City Cinemas Village East has been screening a different Alfred Hitchcock classic on Thursday nights, and this week’s edition of Hitchcocktober involves Rebecca, the director’s first American movie and the only one to ever win a Best Picture Oscar. Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine shine in the 1940 film adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s novel, and the chance to catch it on the big screen doesn’t come along every day. Tickets are $15 and the show starts at 8pm.
