PSYCHO: A LOOK INTO HOLLYWOOD’S WILDEST U-TURN

Monday, October 31st at 8:00 PM

Members $12 | Public $17
Hosted by Film Historian Glenn Andreiev

With a shove of a shower curtain, world cinema and pop culture would never be the same. The famous shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho had 52 edits in a 45 second sequence. Audiences in 1960 had never experienced this type of on-screen terror. Join us as film historian Glenn Andreiev discusses this landmark classic, with backstories on Alfred Hitchcock, the film's unique production and its grizzly true-crime origin. PSYCHO is much more than "The first slasher film." There will be Psycho handouts and a Psycho trivia contest with prizes!
