Students and community members are invited to the College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus for an evening of Halloween-inspired cinematic suspense during the free outdoor screening of Alfred Hitchcock's classic "Psycho."

The screening, set for Saturday, Oct. 30, will begin at 7 p.m. at the campus' Carl A. Rasmussen Amphitheater.

"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 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 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.
