The Hitchcock Nine: saved, and being shown!

One of the first posts I ever did on this blog, nearly two years ago now, was on the BFI's appeal for funds to restore some of Alfred Hitchcock's silent films. So it's with real pleasure that I saw a news story on The Guardian's website today saying that all his films, including the restored silents, will be shown in London this summer, and that several of the silents are being shown in appropriate venues including the Hackney Empire and Wilton's Music Hall.

It's part of the 2012 Festival, and you can book tickets online. I'm avoiding the capital this summer because of a Certain Sporting Event, but if you're stuck in the Big Smoke, this is one way to avoid high pressure sales of fizzy drink and sweaty people in lycra.
