The Final Season - Week 2: Psycho

Welcome to the second week of our 10th and final season of Movies on the Roof! We hope you'll join us this Tuesday, July 16th, for Alfred Hitchcock's classic thriller, Psycho.

This thriller cum horror movie was the first of its kind in multiple ways, and has made its way into American culture even for those who haven’t seen it. The screeching violins from the infamous 'shower scene' are as recognizable as the theme song from Jaws, and just saying ‘shower scene’ is enough to give most of us a shiver.

From not allowing entry into the theatre once the movie started to abruptly turning into a different genre of movie halfway through, there's a good reason this 1960 classic is considered by many to be one of the best movies of all time.

The weather shows scattered thunderstorms all day tomorrow, hopefully burning off before early evening. We're keeping an eye on it and will post here and to Facebook if we have to make the call to turn Movies on the Roof to Movies on the Couch.

Hope to see you soon!
