More movie magic at the Magic Lantern
On Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m., Movie Club at The Magic Lantern Cinemas will present Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.”
The 1960 American suspense/horror film stars Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin and Janet Leigh. The screenplay by Joseph Stefano was based on the 1959 novel “Psycho” by Robert Bloch.
“Psycho” is one of Hitchcock’s most notable films and in 1992 was selected by the U.S. Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry. “Psycho’s” shower scene is considered one of movie history’s scariest moments and “Psycho” is rated as one of the greatest movies all of time by the American Film Institute.
“This seminal Hitchcock film is a timeless film that continues to find new audiences within every generation of movie lovers,” said Rick Kessler, owner of the Magic Lantern Cinemas. “‘Psycho’ is an experience worth every frame to watch—a seminal cinematic work, studied in every film school. If you’ve never seen this classic or if you’ve never experienced it in a theater on a large screen with an audience, get in line now.”
Tickets for Magic Lantern Goes “Live” and The Center film series screenings are $10 for Center members and $12 for nonmembers. Movie Club tickets are $5. All tickets will be available starting at 4:30 p.m. on the Monday of the week of the screening at the Magic Lantern Cinemas box office.

The Spring Corporate Food Drive is a critical event for refilling empty warehouse shelves. By contributing to one of the businesses listed above, people can make a difference in the health and well-being of Blaine County.
People can also participate from the comfort of their own home. Simply go online to www.thehungercoalition.org and make a financial contribution in the name of a participating business.
