Pop Up Film on the Side: The Birds (1963)

July 10, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Hitchcock is even better when it’s projected on the side of a building! See the classic film , “The Birds” for free in a unique urban outdoor movie theater space on Acoma Plaza (near the west entrance entrance of the Central Library). Seating will be provided, but you can bring pillows, blankets and yoga mats if you’d like to sit on the plaza or nearby lawn. Film starts at dusk.

About “The Birds:” See the film that has made us all think twice about the not-so-benign motives of any nearby black bird. “The crows alight, one by one, in the schoolyard above Bodega Bay. They are summoned by the nursery rhyme sung by the children, or drawn by the green glow of Tippi Hedren’s matching skirt and jacket, or maybe lured by the pungent scent of her lit cigarette. By the time she turns her head, the climbing frame is thick with them. ‘She combs her hair but once a year,’ sing the oblivious children inside their classroom. ‘Nickety-nackety now, now, now!’” – theguardian.com. 119 minutes. Rated PG-13.
