The soundtrack to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic horror movie Psychois some of the most terrifying music ever set to film. Imagine Janet Leigh’s immortal shower scene without the bone-chilling musical theme to accompany her screams. On February 12 (in time for a pre-Valentine’s date), the Spokane Symphony boldly takes on the Bernard Herrmann-penned score as the film rolls behind them on stage at the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox.
The symphony has performed other film soundtracks, like Casablanca last season, but Psycho was practically made for this format.
Show up early as a character from the film (Mrs. Bates anyone?) and win prizes in the costume contest. The show starts at 7:30 pm.
Tickets are $28 - $49 and can be purchased at TicketsWest.com beginning Friday. Do note the film is rated R (even though it was made in 1960 and was filmed black and white, do not underestimate its fright factor).
