Halloween thrills and chills will be screened at Clevedon’s cinema this week.

The classic Alfred Hitchcock horror thriller, which prompted controversy on its release and is now often dubbed as Hitchcock’s best and scariest, makes its way back for a rare big-screen outing.
Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) is unhappy in her job at a Phoenix, Arizona real estate office and frustrated in her romance with hardware store manager Sam Loomis (John Gavin). One afternoon, Marion is given $40,000 in cash to be deposited in the bank.
Marion decides to stop for the night at the Bates Motel, where nervous but personable innkeeper Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) cheerfully mentions that she’s the first guest in weeks, before he regales her with curious stories about his mother.
