Eat|See|Hear Outdoor Movie: Psycho
October 5 @ 5:00 pm - 10:30 pm
“A boy’s best friend is his mother.”
Phoenix secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), on the lam after stealing $40,000 from her employer in order to run away with her boyfriend, Sam Loomis (John Gavin), is overcome by exhaustion during a heavy rainstorm. Traveling on the back roads to avoid the police, she stops for the night at the ramshackle Bates Motel and meets the polite but highly strung proprietor Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a young man with an interest in taxidermy and a difficult relationship with his mother.
TIME: Doors 5:00, Music 6:30, Movie 8:00
MUSICAL GUEST: MAWD
MAWD is the moniker of Los Angeles musician Madeleine Mathews. With a sound that gravitates toward an eclectic mix of genres including indie rock, folk rock, folk, blues rock with a bit of a 60’s/70’s retro twist, it’s hard to pinpoint her into one musical corner. MAWD’s soulful textured timbre is diverse and ranges from a breathy/sultry folk and blues vibe to a powerful Janis Joplin-esque/Karen O belt.
