The Birds 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
Love is not the only thing in the air when thousands of birds descend upon the town, attacking and terrorizing its residents. Soon Melanie and Mitch are fighting for their lives against a deadly, unexplainable force in this spine-tingling portrait of nature at its most powerful and ruthless.

The motel is managed by a quiet young man named Norman Bates, who seems to be dominated by his mother. Features one of the most iconic scenes in film history, the infamous "Shower scene."
