“Vertigo” (1958) at the Cerrito on Thursday, January 10, at 7:00.

Don’t miss one of the all-time best movies, “Vertigo” at the Cerrito on Thursday, January 10 at 7:00 p.m.!

James Stewart plays an ex-police officer who suffers from an intense fear of heights; Kim Novak plays…a mystery woman…but so much more. In this mesmerizing film, there is so much to draw you in.

Some reasons why you should see “Vertigo”:

  • Top ranking—“Vertigo” is rated as AFI’s number one mystery, among many other honors.
  • Cinematographic feast—in 1996, “Vertigo” was given perhaps the most painstaking restoration in film history, bringing the color and sound to breathtaking life. Scenes of San Francisco in 1958 show it as a hypnotic setting where fantasy and reality converge.
  • Often considered Hitchcock’s best movie—and uniquely revelatory as to his deepest obsessions.
  • It’s the 80th anniversary of the film—when will you next be able to see it on the big screen?

“Vertigo” plays once only on Thursday, January 10 at 7:00 p.m.—and is expected to sell out. Accordingly, moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online. All seats are $9.50. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.


There are so many temptations at Scene, such as flatbread pizzas, a charcuterie and cheese sampler, baked sandwiches, “bites,” salads, desserts, and much more. You can enjoy them there, or have them brought to your seat while you watch the movie. The atmospheric food/wine bar is a fun and friendly place to hang out, with special wines and beers available. Check it out!
