Ah, October, when seemingly every basic cable channel programs an endless parade of horror films featuring hockey masks, demonic children, and things that go bump in the night. Horror purists, however, might prefer to turn on a more classic kind of thriller, and FilmBar is hosting their perfect event. The movie theater at 815 North Second Street is featuring Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, the black-and-white 1960 production that has prompted many to avoid the shower after viewing. The screening is part of FilmBar’s Film School, which returns at 7 p.m. on Monday, October 17, to teach novices and fans alike about film analysis and the creative process.
Joe Fortunato, senior lecturer at ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, will provide running commentary throughout the screening and lead a post-film discussion. (First-timers are encouraged to arrive early for an “uninterrupted” viewing.) Admission is $5. For tickets, see thefilmbarphx.com.
