Everybody's favorite professor of (insert any humanities, classics or anthropology course-name here), David Soren, dishes on everybody's favorite director of movies that wake you up screaming, Alfred Hitchcock, at 1 p.m., today, at the Loft Cinema, for a special screening of the master's Saboteur.
Turns out the beloved prof has some swagger among the Hollywood set, having made many friends there in his side gig as a show-biz researcher. His connections, it turns out, make him the ideal individual to open for what the Loft promises is a "great looking and sounding, digitally restored version of the Hitchcock classic thriller Saboteur." A Q&A follows, too.

Details of the film can be found on the Loft website, where you should also reserve a seat because only 500 people will fit in the big theater, and it's getting late. Fortunately you don't need to stop for lunch because the Loft has pizza. Also beer and wine.
Basics are here:
