Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) tries to wash away her sins in Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” (1960), in one of the most disturbing scenes in American horror film history.

‘Psycho’ back on the silver screen for one more night

Today marks the final day of a three-day run of Alfred Hitchcock’s famous 1960 horror film Psycho at the Denton Movie Tavern.

The local cinema presents a regular series of films called “Retro Cinema & Cult Classics.” Earlier this month, the cinema recoined its series “Retro Scares” and hosted limited runs of Gremlins, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The final screening of Psycho is at 7:30 p.m. today at the Movie Tavern, 916 W. University Drive.

The film is the suspenseful depiction of an ill-fated meeting between blond bombshell Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), who has stolen $40,000 from a client of her employer.

She stops at the Bates Motel on her way out of town. That’s where she meets mama’s boy Norman Bates, who becomes obsessed with her — much to the dismay of his mother.

Tickets cost $7 for adults, $5 for seniors.
