It would be an exageration I'm sure to say I've seen The Birds a hundred times. But I have watched it just about every chance I had. Never though did I experienc the level of tension and agitation I felt while watching it on the Big Screen. Thank you TCM for this special presentation!

Wonderful Alfred Hitchcock Movie Classic. Great to see it on the big screen. Loved the Tippi Hendren interview prior to watching the movie. Hope we can continue these TCM movie events. Love it!!!!

Still a Classic

The interviews were very neat to see and helped me get into the film more. Having been to Bodega Bay more than once, it is very cool to see so much of the little town in the movie. The movie itself seems slow to start, but once it gets rolling you find that you are thoroughly hooked. Well acted and well presented, not having a clear person to hate takes you to a different level, one not often visited these days. Definitely not a film for the kiddies unless you like dealing with nightmares and screaming children. The ending seemed a little subdued IMO, but it didn't ruin the movie. Still one that you need to see.

Good Event

This was the first time I've seen any Hitchcock in a movie theatre and it was a great experience. Having said that, what made this movie scary 50 years ago is likely not going to keep people on the edge of their seats today. Perhaps we're jaded and/or suffer from sensory overload. In fact, the crowd I saw the film with laughed more than screamed. Nonetheless, if you want to see one of Hitchcock's masterpieces, do go the next time this event is put on.

The Birds

We wento to Del Amo 18 to attend the screening of "The Birds". The show was supposed to start at 7pm. It did not start at 7pm. No one came to tell us what was going on. At approximately 7:20pm, a gentleman went out to talk to the staff to find out what was going on and brought her back in with him. Apparently they were having "technical difficulties". Then she left. The gentleman stood up to tell us his other Fathom Event experiences and apparently these technical difficulties happen frequently. While he was talking, the usher came back in and started yelling at him to sit down. It was very rude since he was not saying anything derogatory. The previews finally started at 745pm, without any sound. Then the interview with Robert Osborn finally started at approximately 8pm, the sound finally started working with that. The movie itself did not start until 8:10pm. A lot of people left prior to the movie. I do not think I will attend another Fathom Event because of this.
