Image result for psycho movie posterTonight is the last chance in 2019 to join the CALS Ron Robinson Theater for HITCHCOCKTOBERFEST! They have been screening FIVE classic Hitchcock films throughout October, and finish the series off tonight (October 29) with Psycho

The screening starts at 7pm.

Phoenix secretary Marion Crane, on the run after stealing $40,000 from her employer in order to run away with her boyfriend, Sam Loomis, is overcome by exhaustion during a heavy rainstorm. Traveling on the back roads to avoid the police, she stops for the night at the ramshackle Bates Motel and meets the polite but highly strung proprietor Norman Bates, a young man with an interest in taxidermy and a difficult relationship with his mother.

The film stars Janet Leigh (whose daughter would star in her own iconic horror movie), Vera Miles, John Gavin, Martin Balsam, and, of course, Anthony Perkins. It was nominated for four Oscars – Supporting Actress (Leigh), Director (Hitchcock), Black and White Cinematography and Black and White Art Direction.  Interestingly, Bernard Herrmann’s iconic score was not nominated.
