Come to Eureka Theater for their Summer of Suspense, where a variety of Alfred Hitchcock films will be played throughout the Summer. The theater will play Hitchcock's "The Birds" on Saturday, August 26.
The Birds is a 1963 American natural horror–thriller film produced and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Loosely based on the 1952 short story of the same name by Daphne du Maurier, it focuses on a series of sudden and unexplained violent bird attacks on the people of Bodega Bay, California, over the course of a few days.
The film stars Rod Taylor and Tippi Hedren in her screen debut, alongside Jessica Tandy, Suzanne Pleshette, and Veronica Cartwright. The screenplay is by Evan Hunter, who was told by Hitchcock to develop new characters and a more elaborate plot while keeping du Maurier’s title and concept of unexplained bird attacks.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets available at the door and are $10 for adults and $5 for 12 and under.
