There are two shows, 1:30 and 4. The Penguin is by American jazz original Raymond Scott. The main event is Alfred Hitcock's The Lodger, a Story of the London Fog. Relache, an octet of winds, strings, keyboard, and percussion will provide live accompaniment to this most enduring example of Hitchcock's work in the silent film genre. The score is from 1999, by British composer Joby Talbott, best know for his music for the Disney film, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Relache commissioned versions of both The Penguin and Hitchcock's Lodger from Philadelphia's Darin Kelly. More info, including a ticket link, is at
