55 Water Street
New York City, New York

Join us beneath the stars in Downtown’s newest waterfront rooftop park for the feature presentation of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 classic Rear Window. L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries (James Stewart) is a professional photographer sidelined by an accident while on assignment. His immersion in the human drama (and comedy) visible from his window is a by-product of boredom. When the invalid wife of Lars Thorwald (Raymond Burr) disappears, Jeff enlists his girlfriend, Lisa (Grace Kelly) and a wisecracking visiting nurse (Thelma Ritter) to help him to determine whether she's really left town or been murdered. Following the feature, join us for a short film by Brooklyn-based filmmaker Mark Street. alone, apart: the dream reveals the waking day is in homage to two ramshackle cities, made up of footage shot while meandering city streets with a camera, looking to be haunted by unfamiliar vistas. Solace is found in the forgotten landscapes, odd voices on a ham radio, and shimmering water in a desolate harbor. Sponsored by HIP Health Plan of New York. www.RiverToRiverNYC.com
