Well, it was quite a spectacle last week at the opening of Cinema Supper Club, From the Golden Gate to the Silver Screen, in the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco. Thursday night’s kickoff of 50-year-old Vertigo featured the living relatives of Alfred Hitchcock, a live recreation of the Carlotta portrait featured in the movie, a pre-show talk from the authors of Footsteps in the Fog, and people walking around in period dress from 50 years ago.
The whole idea is that you can start noshing at 6:00 P.M. and also have time to be able to check out Women Impressionists and the huge Chihulys before the film starts at 8:00 P.M. See the schedule below and get your tickets here.
Carlotta recreated. The painting actually used in Vertigo has been lost to the ages.
Gallery Six, where Carlotta’s portrait was hung.
A vintage Jaguar, just like the movie’s.
