On Saturday 23rd February, Kinostalgia opened its 2013 programme with Hitchcock’s classic suspense thriller, North by Northwest. This night of cinema nostalgia and old–style Hollywood glamour transported the audience back to the 1950s for a night of film, vintage music, cocktails, dancing and good old-fashioned fun.

Long before Mad Men’s Don Draper, there was Cary Grant’s Roger Thornhill, the dashing and debonair advertising executive who is mistaken for a spy.

North by Northwest sees Cary Grant as a Manhattan ad man pursued across the country while he looks for a way to survive. Most men would crumble, but Thornhill is smooth, suave and calm under pressure. He is never less than devastatingly handsome in that iconic grey suit and even has time to charm the ice-cool Eve (Eva Saint Marie) — one of Hitchcock’s greatest blondes.

A screening of North by Northwest will be followed by a 1950s Madmen-esque party with DJ Mohair Sam playing music from the era. The audience is invited to help set the scene by dressing up in their vintage finest, paying homage to 1950s or mirroring the elegant characters of the film.

Sit back in the charming surroundings of Villa Neukölln and enjoy a signature cocktail while watching one of the greatest thrillers unfold before dancing the night away.
