Hitchcocktoberfest dodges THE BIRDS tonight at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater

The Birds (1963)Join the CALS Ron Robinson Theater for HITCHCOCKTOBERFEST! They will be screening FIVE classic Hitchcock films throughout October, and continue the series off tonight (October 22) with The Birds

The screening starts at 7pm.

The 1963 film is rare for Hitchcock in that the central character is female (though of course, bad things happen to her.) It starred Tippi Hedron along with Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy, Veronica Cartwright, and Suzanne Pleshette.

Melanie Daniels, a wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a romance with Mitch Brenner, a young lawyer, which takes her on a journey to a small Northern California town. Things slowly take a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people.

The movie was nominated for one Oscars: Best Visual Effects.
