Movie at the Museum – The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog
May 26 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Join us at historic Roedde House Museum on Friday, May 26th at 7pm for a special screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1927 silent film, “The Lodger: A Story of the London Fog”. Screening will take place in our Victorian Parlour. Seating is limited.
“With his third feature film, THE LODGER: A STORY OF THE LONDON FOG, Alfred Hitchcock took a major step toward greatness and made what he would come to consider his true directorial debut. This haunting silent thriller tells the tale of a mysterious young man (matinee idol Ivor Novello) who takes up residence at a London boardinghouse just as a killer known as the Avenger descends upon the city, preying on blonde women. The film is animated by the palpable energy of a young stylist at play, decisively establishing the director’s formal and thematic obsessions.” The Criterion Channel
Roedde House was built in 1893 for the family of Gustav Roedde and his family. The house was designed by architect Francis Rattenbury, and the family lived in the home from 1893 to 1920. The museum reflects the family’s time in the house during the 1890s and early 1900s.
