Come watch Hitchcock's 'North by Northwest' with us Thursday at Ron Robinson

With spies, triple crosses, a dastardly plot, an icy blonde, mistaken identity, picturesque locales, a murderous biplane and Cary Grant wearing the most dirt-repelling gray suit in all of film history, Hitchcock's 1959 thriller "North By Northwest" may well have invented the modern thriller. Handily setting the prototype for every subsequent Cool-Headed Man in a Jam flick, it's a film that has been endlessly paid homage to and ripped off by other filmmakers since its debut, and for good reason. It's a hell of a good time at the movies. 

Now's your chance to see the Hitchcock favorite on the big screen, with this week's Thursday night screening at Little Rock's Ron Robinson Theater, part of the Arkansas Times film series. Show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are only $5.

PRO TIP: Be sure to wear a name tag that says "Hello, My Name is Not George Kaplan," or else there might be trouble.
