Hitchcocktoberfest at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater closes out with PSYCHO. Stay out of the shower……

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.

What about BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S? See it tonight at 7 at the CALS Ron Robinson Theater

215px-Breakfast_at_TiffanysYou can’t eat breakfast at Tiffany’s, but you can enjoy the classic film tonight at the Ron Robinson Theater which presents the 1961 classic Blake Edwards film. (Be sure and pay attention to a passing reference to Arkansas, too.)

Based on Truman Capote’s novella, the film was one of Audrey Hepburn’s iconic roles.  Joining her in the cast were George Peppard, Patricia Neal, Martin Balsam, Buddy Ebsen and Mickey Rooney.  The film features the famous song “Moon River” which Hepburn sings at one point in the movie.  The film was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Actress (Hepburn), Best Adapted Screenplay (George Axelrod) and Best Art Direction. It won the Oscars for Best Song – “Moon River” (Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini) and Best Score (Mancini again).

The movie starts at 7pm tonight. Admission is $5. Concessions are available for purchase as well.

(You may not be able to shop at a Tiffany & Co. in person in Little Rock, but you can see Tiffany stained glass at City Hall and the State Capitol, as well as other Tiffany furnishings at the latter.)
