The Lodger at ArtHouseFW Aug. 31


The Lone Star Film Society’s ArthouseFW and The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will screen THE LODGER as part of its partnership series Scare Tactics: Six by Hitchcock.

Described by Hitchcock himself as “the first true Hitchcock movie,” this Masterfully silent thriller is set in a fog-bound London terrorized by a Jack the Ripper-style murderer known only as The Avenger. His victims, all young blonde women, are discovered each Tuesday night. This is one of the great British silent era crime films, starring matinée idol Ivor Novello as the mysterious new lodger who appears to be acting rather strangely.


Screenings will be held in the Modern’s auditorium. Tickets are $9 for general admission, $8 for Modern members, $6 for LSFS and Modern Reel People members, and free for ArthouseFW passholders and students with a valid student ID.

Attendees can also purchase an annual pass that will provide admittance to all screenings for the August season of ArthouseFW and beyond for $75. The Lone Star Film Society also offers a variety of membership plans that include the ArthouseFW Annual Pass.

Tickets and passes are now on sale at lonestarfilmsociety.com and will be available for sale at The Modern two hours prior to showtime.
