Spring is in the air, at last! Warmer weather and longer days is enough to make anyone anxious to get out of the house, and there are plenty of great reasons to do that in the coming weeks. Here are a few local events that we’re looking forward to….


Extraordinary Cinemas: Hitchcock/Truffaut

March 16-17, 6pm | The Music Hall Loft

In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and a 30-year-old François Truffaut sequestered themselves in a windowless Hollywood office for a weeklong conversation. The result was a book called Hitchcock/Truffaut, an in-depth analysis of Hitchcock’s famous works. Director Kent Jones brings this book to life in this documentary, interviewing cinema greats like Martin Scorsese and David Fincher. Movie buffs, don’t miss out on this one.
