Halloween Cycle Cinema - Psycho (1960)
Sat 29 October 2016, 20:00 – 22:00 BST
*Due to bad weather the event will be moved inside Middleton Hall, which will be decorated for an extra spooky experience!*
Join our pedal-powered outdoor cinema. Wrap up warm for an evening outdoor screening of Psycho, the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece, in the chilling setting of Middleton Hall. Five bikes will be linked to the projector, so you can help power the horror. Eco-friendly screams guaranteed!
From director Alfred Hitchcock, the "Master of Suspense," this psychological thriller is the tale of a woman on the run (Janet Leigh) who checks into the mysterious Bates Motel. The property appears to be deserted, except for the proprietors Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) and his mother. Psycho gave audiences a whole new perspective on taking showers and became Hitchcock's biggest hit. "A boy's best friend is his mother."
This event takes place on Middleton Hall's lawn, but will move indoors, in the great hall in case of bad weather.
We recommend you arrive at least 20 min before screening starts, to give you time to check-in and get settled.
You're welcome to bring drinks and nibbles, though hot drinks will be on sale. No alcohol or glass containers please.
No dogs or tents allowed. Picnic blankets are allowed, though chairs will be provided for everybody.
Psycho is rated 15 (no under 15 allowed in the screening). Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
