Bow Tie Cinema continues its ongoing weekend "Cine Classic" Film Series with one of director Alfred Hitchcock's most admired--and financially successful--films: the suspense horror classic Psycho.
When first released in 1960, Psycho shocked audiences with it's presentation of deviant behaviors and, for the times, frank sexuality. Featuring a particularly chilling and memorable performance by Anthony Perkins as the homicidal proprietor of the Bates Motel, Psycho is one of the finest suspense films to ever come out of Hollywood.
