Canyon Country Campus to Host Evening of Cinematic Suspense
Students and community members in the mood for a frighteningly fun film experience are invited to the College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus for an evening of Halloween inspired cinematic suspense, screams and shrieks, during the free outdoor screening of director Alfred Hitchcock’s chilling classic “Psycho.”
“Alfred Hitchcock’s films are timeless, suspenseful thrillers,” said Dr. Dena Maloney, vice president of the Canyon Country campus and economic development. “The College of the Canyons cinema department is offering a class on Hitchcock’s films this semester, and we thought showing ‘Psycho’ during the Halloween season would be a great way to launch the Canyon Country campus’ movie under the stars series.”
The scream-filled screening of “Psycho” will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30, at the Carl A. Rasmussen Amphitheater.
The film will be shown on a 16-foot-wide, state-of-the-art outdoor movie screen, with attendees encouraged to come with blankets and lawn chairs and enjoy a festive atmosphere as the sun goes down and fear fills the night.
The evening will begin with a brief presentation about Alfred Hitchcock and the film “Psycho” by College of the Canyons cinema instructor Melinda Johnson. Following the screening, and subsequent screaming, there will be a question/answer period providing the audience an opportunity to discuss the film.
Hot cocoa, popcorn and other snacks, beverages, tricks and treats will be available for purchase through campus food vendor Maui Wowi, located adjacent to the amphitheater.
For more information about the movie under the stars series and the screening of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” please contact the College of the Canyons Canyon Country Campus at (661) 362-3801.
