«A boy's best friend is his mother.»

Join us at the Rio Theatre for a night celebrating master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, and one of the most important films ever made — PSYCHO. On Wednesday, January 17 we're double billing the compelling new documentary 78/52: ALFRED HITCHCOCK'S SHOWER SCENE, a genius breakdown of one of the most influential movie scenes ever, followed by the original PSYCHO.

Phoenix secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), on the lam after stealing $40,000 from her employer in order to run away with her boyfriend, Sam Loomis (John Gavin), is overcome by exhaustion during a heavy rainstorm. Traveling on the back roads to avoid the police, she stops for the night at the ramshackle Bates Motel and meets the polite but highly strung proprietor Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a young man with an interest in taxidermy and a difficult relationship with his… Mother.

«Timeless classic. Superb performances and the infamous shower scene make this the perfect nightmare.» (Empire Magazine)

«Infamous for its shower scene, but immortal for its contribution to the horror genre. Because PSYCHO was filmed with tact, grace, and art, Alfred Hitchcock didn't just create modern horror, he validated it.» (Rotten Tomatoes)

«After half a century of terror, PSYCHO is still ensuring that no one feels safe in the shower.» (Guardian)
