Preservation Idaho Presents ‘Architecture Of Suspense | A Fundraiser + Party in the Historic Shrine Ballroom

November 11, 2023 @ 5:30 pm 8:00 pm MST

DIVE INTO THE MYSTERY!

JOIN US FOR ‘ARCHITECTURE OF SUSPENSE’: A RIOT OF HITCHCOCK FILM, FASHION, MUSIC, AND ARCHITECTURAL MARVELS FROM THE MID-CENTURY!

An unmissable mid-century fundraiser and party in the historic shrine ballroom.

Join us for a fundraiser and costume party, fashion show, docent led tours of the building, music, presentation, and book signing in celebration of the works of Alfred Hitchcock through film and architecture.

‘Architecture of Suspense’ features Christine Madrid French, an Architectural Historian, historic preservation advocate, and best-selling author, at the Shrine Social Club.

Join us for an entertaining affair where we delve into the allure of Hitchcock-era fashion with a mid-century fashion show by the Boise Belles, and an enlightening presentation by Christine Madrid French. Christine investigates buildings as characters in Hitchcock films and the relation to the built environment and architectural form. Enjoy docent led tours of the building, a book signing, and time-period accurate music by KFFI 103.1 Tropico FM. Indulge in complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a no-host bar while dressed in 1940s – 60s attire, adding a nostalgic touch to the festivities!

Immerse yourself in suspense – become your favorite Hitchcock character. Note: costumes are optional!

Don’t miss out on the thrills and glamour – secure your ticket today!

This is a fundraising event for Preservation Idaho, featuring a raffle and best costume with prizes.
