Timeless Classic

I remember the first time I watched The Birds at home as a child. I was so scared I couldn't sleep. Years later, I have watched it over and over and when the opportunity to see it on the big screen presented itself I just had to see it! My boyfriend and I dressed up as Melanie and Mitch and had a blast. The movie was everything I had imagined on the big screen.....more intense, dramatic and frightening and the sounds of the screeching birds was so loud I had to cover my ears. As the children ran down the hill while birds attacked them, I felt as if I were one of them. What a wonderful idea to show this classic Hitchcock film on the big screen.

The BIrds

Todays movies are so fast paced, so loud, so intense, this was a well acted, well dircted movie, like they were and like they should be still. Each scene was well thought out and well done, even the fakey birds with technology today were a scary thing to see.. All the old movies are a delight to see, you dont JUST have to have a pretty face.

It was fantastic to see this Hitchcock masterpiece on the big screen. It starts at a slow pace and then builds to a frenzy. The visual effects are stunning,rivaling those of todays's. It has a fine cast and a great story. It really makes you wonder what will happen if nature did rise up against man.

Tha Birds

Have seen this film on tv, but soooo much better on the big screen! Even tho it was made in the 60s, it still conjurers up some pretty frightening images as the birds descend on the sleepy little town of Bodega Bay. Thanks for putting the classics back on the big screen, where they belong!

THE BIRDS

The theatre that did the showing was incompetent. The previews showed without the audio. When the interview w/Robert Osborne and Tippi came on it played for a bit and then it it stopped for 20 minutes. They then started video 10 minutes into the movie and no sound. They had to rewind it back to the interview, still no sound for 2-3 minutes and then the movie started. After the movie, no credits and no house lights. We had to make our way out of the theartre in the dar. The manager was apathetic and didn't seem to know what was going on. I don't think I will do this again -- very disappointing. I can buy it on DVD and watch it at home without the all the hassle.
