Film Noir Hitchcock Weekend: Psycho
July 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
ORGAN CONCERT ON OUR “BIGGEST LITTLE WURLITZER” ONE HALF-HOUR BEFORE THE MOVIE BEGINS!
Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous film, 1960’s Psycho, stars Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, Vera Miles, John Gavin and Martin Balsam. Perkins plays Norman Bates, caretaker of the Bates Hotel, where Leigh’s character Marion Crane, makes the unfortunate choice of staying the night. The film’s infamous shower scene is one of the most iconic moments in movie history, and Psycho remains one of the most influential films of all time. Despite receiving mixed reviews when it was released, often due to its depictions of sexuality and violence that were shocking to audiences at the time, Psycho was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the United States Library of Congress in 1992 and was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
Enjoy the Three Stooges short “Brideless Groom” before the film!
