Review from Paula Mitchell

This was my first experience at the Alex and it was great. Hitchock movies never disappoint and it was especially nice seeing it on the big screen.

Review from Dave

I noticed several things in the movie this time that I had missed or forgotten previously. I also won the gift basket full of Psycho stuff for a $5 raffle ticket.
Well worth the price!

Review from Jerome Gonzales

That the movie was perfect is a given - it's a masterpiece and the brilliance of Hitchcock's moviemaking can't be overstated. Seeing it in an intimate and historic theatre like the Alex was a definite treat. The only drawback was some obnoxious...continued

Description

Alfred Hitchcock used his television crew, shot in black and white on a tight schedule and produced one of the most terrifying films in Hollywood history. Anthony Perkins defined the loony Norman Bates whose devotion to his dead mother has murderous intent. Janet Leigh and a photo double endured hundreds of camera setups to produce the shower scene that is still taught in editing master classes. The murderous set pieces are so well done that audiences still jump with fright even when they know what is coming. Robert Bloch penned the original novel and Bernard Herrmann’s score adds punch at just the right moments.

Event running time is approximately 2 hours.
