Weekender: This Weekend’s Top Five Events


Fuck SXSW. There’s so much good stuff happening here this weekend, and absolutely none of it requires an access badge, plane fare, or excessive tweetage. Here we go:

Vertigo
With all its intricate Art Deco architecture, the historic Paramount Theatre (2025 Broadway) is a throwback to the “golden age” of moviegoing, when theaters were oftentimes just as eye-catching as the films they featured. Consequently, the Paramount serves as a fitting backdrop for a series of classic Hollywood flicks that screen in the old theater once a month through May. Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological thriller Vertigo (1958) returns to the big screen on Friday, Mar. 9, during which Bay Area natives can attempt to identify all the San Francisco locations featured in the locally shot film. 8 p.m., $5. 510-465-6400 or ParamountTheatre.com. — Cassie Harwood
