The Roswell Museum and Art Center will present Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” for free on Thursday Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at the museum. Inspired by a real-life incident in Santa Cruz, Calif., and a short story by Daphne du Maurier, the master of suspense created one of his strangest and most macabre masterpieces. A wealthy San Francisco socialite pursues a potential beau to a small Northern California town. Things slowly take a turn for the bizarre when birds of all kinds begin to attack people in increasing numbers and with intensive viciousness. Under the guidance of a bird trainer and utilizing Walt Disneys special effect studios, Hitchcock employed thousands of real birds and his own ingenuity to create the most terrifying aspect of the film, the undeniable reality of seemingly impossible events. This program is sponsored by the RMAC Foundation. Fresh popcorn and refreshments will be available; donations are always welcome.
