Friends of the Pomona Fox Halloween Special

Friends of the Pomona Fox
Sunday, October 24
Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO

Alfred Hitchcock's
Doors open 1:00 pm
Screening 2:00 pm
With Halloween just around the corner, it's the perfect time for a timeless tale of murder and intrigue. Just when you thought it was safe to take a shower!

It's the Friends of the Pomona Fox's first Halloween program. Come in costume, or come as you are. But watch out for Norman Bates.

In June of 1960, 50 years ago, the master of the macabre, Alfred Hitchcock, released the film Psycho. It would forever change people's attitudes toward taking showers.

While the main star was Janet Leigh (nominated for an Oscar®and winner of a Golden Globe as best actress), the action actually revolved around newcomer Anthony Perkins and his character Norman Bates.

But it is the powerful direction of master Alfred Hitchcock which makes this film a truly frightening look into the mind of a truly disturbed individual. Also starring Vera Miles, John Gavin, Martin Balsam, and John McIntire, the film is also notable for the truly haunting score by Bernard Herrmann.

Thanks to Universal, our raffle this month will include the chance to win a copy of the 50th Anniversary Blu-Ray DVD of Psycho. We'll also be giving a DVD to the best costume.

Prices: Adults $5.00
           Children 12 and under $3.00

We'll have popcorn, sodas, and candy available. Food and "adult" beverages will be available at Drink (direct entrance from the theater lobby). Food and beverages purchased at Drink may be brought into the theater!

Online Ticket sales. Tickets purchased online include a $1 per ticket convenience fee. All tickets will be available at will-call on the day of the screening. Online sales will cease as of 10/22/2010.:
