You can't escape them. Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds soars to the Frida as part of our Classic Movie Nights series. Make sure to arrive early at 7:30PM for a 30 min pre-screening lecture by screenwriter and researcher Theo Siegel!
Chic socialite Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) enjoys a passing flirtation with an eligible attorney (Rod Taylor) in a San Francisco pet shop and, on an impulse, follows him to his hometown bearing a gift of lovebirds. But upon her arrival, the bird population runs amok. Suddenly, the townsfolk face a massive avian onslaught, with the feathered fiends inexplicably attacking people all over Bodega Bay.
Utilizing state-of-the-art electronic sound effects and a groundbreaking lack of musical score, The Birds is a harrowing feat of unknowable terror, and one of Hitch's point-blank scariest works.
