On Saturday, May 2nd, 125 guests – some attired in ‘50���s “Hitchcockian��������� style – were treated to a sensational evening of drama, mystery, delicious bites and libations at the Rivertown Film Spring Gala, “Hitchcock at Hand”. The legendary Gothic Revival Hand Mansion in South Nyack set the mood, with owners Noah and Dennis Brodsky welcoming the revelers both inside the house and under a tent with flutes of champagne. Scenes from Hitchcock classics were projected inside the tent and on a screen nestled in the woods. The evening included local actors performing vignettes from Hitchcock films, a silent auction, and a tour led by Gini Stolldorf of the Historical Society of the Nyacks. Rivertown Film gives our sincere thanks to everyone who helped make it possible, as well as those who attended.
