Special Screening of THE LODGER 

Saturday, August 27th at 7pm

The Rosette


We are ecstatic to screen Alfred Hitchcock’s 1927 silent thriller The Lodger with a lush and evocative ACG-commissioned musical score by our Artistic Director Joe Williams. This casual evening at The Rosette will include beer and wine, and insights from the composer. It’s a perfect evening to celebrate ACG’s first major streaming feature release! Seating is limited to 50, donations to support the evening, and ACG creative ventures such as this, are optional (below).

A gripping tale of a mysterious lodger, a series of murders, and a beautiful show girl. The Lodger is Alfred Hitchcock’s third film. This 1927 silent classic is the first to introduce his distinct artistic vision exploring themes of voyeurism, ambiguity, violence, and sexuality with Hitchcock’s brilliant cinematography and storytelling. The Lodger also includes Hitchcock’s very first trademark cameo.  In this release, you’ll experience The Lodger in a whole new way with Joe Williams’ brilliant 2015 musical score for four guitars and cello, commissioned by Austin Classical Guitar in 2017. Superstar cellist Bion Tsang performs with the international award-winning members of Texas Guitar Quartet in this incredibly special new release. Williams’ new score was recorded by Eric Pearson and Todd Waldron, and mastered by Brad Sayles.
