Join the Crown Uptown in honoring Alfred Hitchcock. To celebrate the film auteur’s 120th birthday the theater is screening a Hitchcock film series — one classic every Monday this month at 7 p.m. Psycho, Aug. 5; The Birds, Aug. 12; Rear Window, Aug. 19 and Vertigo, Aug. 26. Come for the psychological suspense, stay for the voyeur framing and MacGuffins!


Touching base with Eric Wedge

Buzz is building among WSU baseball fans, with the announcement of Eric Wedge as new head coach. He brings a deep resume to the position: major leaguer, manager — and starting catcher on the university’s 1989 national championship team.

But summer’s not over yet, as one look at the sun dresses and jumpsuits in our fashion pages can attest!
