Alfred Hitchcock's San Francisco

July 01, 2017

This Independence Day, cinephiles, movie hounds and lovers of all things Hitchcock are in for a treat. On July 4th at 11:00 a.m., the San Francisco Library is hosting a walking tour of Nob Hill and Union Square in honor of the locations favored by the director during the filming of “Vertigo” and several of his other films. Hitch loved the architectural icons and elegance of the city, and, in addition to “Vertigo,” filmed such memorable classics as “Marnie,” “The Birds,” and “Family Plot” here.  

“Alfred Hitchcock's San Francisco” includes a look at shops, clubs, hotels, and other locations included in “Vertigo” and other films made by “The Master of Suspense.” Knowledgeable docents explain how the director made his location choices and how they were filmed, along with stories about their history. Walkers who have not yet seen “Vertigo” are encouraged to watch it before joining the tour, as this will add to their understanding and enjoyment. Tours are free, but donations are welcome. Comfortable shoes and clothing are also recommended, as there is a steep downhill walk at the end of the tour. For additional times and dates, check out the Walking Tour schedule here: http://www.sfcityguides.org/current_schedule.html.
