Time to cue the screaming violins

‘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.
