Robert Bloch Centennial Triple Feature!
PSYCHO / PSYCHO II / PSYCHO III

Our centennial salute to author Robert Bloch (April 5, 1917 – September 23, 1994) includes all three feature adaptations of his book Psycho.

35 mm!

PSYCHO
1960, Universal, 109 min, USA, Dir: Alfred Hitchcock

Coming off the comparatively big budget NORTH BY NORTHWEST, director Alfred Hitchcock decided he wanted to make a nice little, low-budget black-and-white film for a change of pace. This was the result, and the shock waves are still reverberating. Lovely embezzler Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) takes refuge from a rainstorm off the beaten track on a lonely California highway. Unfortunately, she checks in at the Bates Motel, presided over by young Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a strange fellow living with his mother in a nearby mansion. Hitchcock used the small crew from his popular TV show for this hair-raising example of California Gothic, and it remains one of the most influential chillers ever made. With Vera Miles and John Gavin.

PSYCHO II
1983, Universal, 113 min, USA, Dir: Richard Franklin

Two decades after the horrific events of the Alfred Hitchcock original, Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) is paroled from a mental institution and returns to the family business, which has been turned into a sleazy adult motel. With a victim’s relative (Vera Miles, reprising her earlier role) vehemently opposed to his release, the pressure hits Norman from all sides, and it’s not long before “Mother” reappears and the bodies start dropping again. With Meg Tilly, Robert Loggia and Dennis Franz.


35 mm!

PSYCHO III
1986, Universal, 93 min, USA, Dir: Anthony Perkins

Anthony Perkins directs and stars in this final theatrical installment of the PSYCHO saga. As Norman Bates, he’s still dealing with the fallout from the last group of killings in the form of a nosy journalist and a disgruntled motel employee. On the plus side, he’s fallen in love with a suicidal nun (Diana Scarwid) - but Norman’s over-protective mother never did think much of his taste in women.


Tickets: $15.
