Awesome Restoration

Classic Hitchcock suspense - it was great to see it on the big screen in a perfect restoration. The audio quality was clear and crisp as well. Screeching birds never sounded better!

Loved "The Birds" but......

My husband and I had to leave half way through the movie because the seats were killing us and the movie was painfully loud. I was hoping the movie had been remastered or digitized for clarity but that was not the case. A tad bit grainy. Excellent movie but I would rather watch it on a comfortable couch on a small TV than to endure the torture racks that pass for seats in a movie theater. I must say though that there is nothing like seeing it on the big screen.

What a great experience! Although I've seen this movie 6 dozen times, I've never seen this favorite movie on the big screen. Anyone who wants to experience an Alfred Hitchcock movie absolutely MUST experience it in the movies - you can't truly appreciate the cinematography until you see it up close like this. Makes you feel like you are actually there. I saw a little humor mixed in certain scenes, I even got teary-eyed when Cathy explained how Annie pushed her inside (then the birds covered her) - that has never happened any of the times I watched this movie. Can't wait for more!

wonderful film and i am so glad that they are finally showing classic movies. new movies, their remakes and sequels are for the most part horrible. its good to see quality films, actors and stories. thanks to all involved in bringing the classics back to the big screen.

I was surprised how stilted the dialogue and melodramatic the acting was in the movie. I've seen it before several times, but seeing it on the big screen may have brought that out more. Most of Hitchcock's movies were well acted, so I was wondering if he was going for some kind of horror schlock. I've avoided reading about it to let it percolate for a day or so. It is the definition of unsettling, and I'm sure Hitch was going for that reaction.
