Capital Classics, the new hump-day film series at Landmark’s recently refurbished West End Cinema, offers a screening of the fourth and final pairing between director Alfred Hitchcock and actor Cary Grant.

One of the American Film Institute’s “Top 100 American Films,” the superlative espionage caper follows Grant as a Manhattan advertising executive who is abducted, framed for murder, chased, and, in a signature set piece, crop-dusted.

Happy Hour-priced beer and wine are on offer from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 1:30, 4:30, and 7:30 p.m. Landmark’s West End Cinema, 2301 M St. NW. Tickets are $12.50. Call 202-534-1907 or visit
