Love Hitchcock Classics!

I'd only ever seen clips of this Hitchcock classic until my husband and I went to see it last night. He doesn't like old movies (something about lack of special effects) but I talked him into this one in honor of Halloween. We both enjoyed it so much that I think I stand a chance of getting him to try a few more old classics! - The era, cast, and storyline was romantic and enchanting.- and we didn't see any strings above the birds, they did a great job of digitally re-mastering. Can't wait for Frankenstein and Bride of Frankie next month!

See The Birds like never before

Wow. My whole family went to see this movie. I saw it as a kid and it scared the heck out of me. We own it on VHS and have seen it several times, but not like this. Big Screen, incredible sound, digitally remastered to provide tha audience the "meant to be experience". For the first time, my wife and I were ble to see the true facial expressions of Jessica Tandy which revealed deeper sarcasm and inference than the dialouge ever could have. One could even see the fly that lands on Suzanne Pleshette's leg. Visually, the picture was clear, precise, and sharp. The sound quality was fabulous. If today's technology was available in 1963, this movie would have had an even bigger impact of suspense. If you wanted to see the Birds as you have never seen it before, this was the way to see it. Next up for us: To Kill a Mockingbird.

It is such a great experience to be able to see this movie on the big screen. I was able to take my family and experience this with them. The Birds has always been one of my favorite movies and I was excited when TCM announced that they would be showing this in theaters.

Just as I remembered it. But, why did it abruptly end without "THE END" or credits? The audience did not know if they should leave, or if there was more to come..... The theater lights stayed off for about a minute after the sudden end. Saw this at Disney / AMC 24 Pleasure island 2pm 9/19/2012

Watched it on the big screen. Best thing about the whole experience was how crowded it was and that NOBODY in the audience was snickering or all that bullshit (like in that article Tux posted about today's audiences' attitudes towards old film). It would have been better if they used film projection but seeing it on a big screen in a crowded room makes up for it. It was truly fantastic to see a Hitchcock film, and from his prime years. I really hope I see another film of his like this again, preferably with a Bernard Herrmann score booming on the speakers.
