Gorgeous, chills down my spine. Amazing seeing people watching the film for the first time jump in their seats. And there was dancing before with live music from the Martini Bros! Yes!

Read a _Wall Street Journal “article ": the music of _Psycho _


Bernard Herrmann revolutionized the art of film music with his hair-raising soundtrack to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. The San Francisco Symphony performs the score live alongside Hitchcock’s iconic film that changed the silver screen and shocked audiences 50 years ago. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience a cinematic classic as you’ve never seen (or heard) it before!

Arrive one hour prior to the concert for music and dancing with the Martini Brothers, plus desserts and specialty drinks.
