Dir. Alfred Hitchcock. 1963, 119 mins. 35mm. With Tippi Hedren, Rod Taylor, Jessica Tandy. Hitchcock's masterpiece of avian horror puts Hedren's mod socialite Melanie Daniels through the wringer as she flees for her life from Bodega Bay, California, seagulls, jays, hawks, and sparrows gone curiously amok. One of Hitch's scariest, The Birds, with its deadly beaks and furiously flying feathers, is a wildly intense experience, enhanced by razor-sharp editing and a soundtrack with no music, only the sounds of birdcalls and flapping wings.

Venue Description: Museum of the Moving Image advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. In its expanded and renovated facilities - acclaimed for both its accessibility and bold design - the Museum presents exhibitions; screenings of significant works; discussion programs featuring actors, directors, craftspeople, and business leaders; and education programs which serve more than 50,000 students each year. The Museum also houses a significant collection of moving-image artifacts.
