SIB will continue its movie matinees this fall on Monday, October 21, as we celebrate Halloween and present “The Birds,” an American thriller film, released in 1963, that was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and centers on a small northern California coastal town that is inexplicably attacked and rendered helpless by massive flocks of aggressive birds.(Rated: PG-13, 90 minutes).

“Melanie Daniels is the modern rich socialite, part of the jet-set who always gets what she wants. When lawyer Mitch Brenner sees her in a pet shop, he plays something of a practical joke on her, and she decides to return the favor. She drives about an hour north of San Francisco to Bodega Bay, where Mitch spends the weekends with his mother Lydia and younger sister Cathy. Soon after her arrival, however, the birds in the area begin to act strangely. A seagull attacks Melanie as she is crossing the bay in a small boat, and then, Lydia finds her neighbor dead, obviously the victim of a bird attack. Soon, birds in the hundreds and thousands are attacking anyone they find out of doors. There is no explanation as to why this might be happening, and as the birds continue their vicious attacks, survival becomes the priority. ” (credit IMDB)

To watch, you can stream it through PBS.

Our second movie was Remarkable Birds, a 28-minute film by Coastal Kingdom. What is it about birds that makes them so appealing? Join Tony for a closer look at some of the avian fauna living in the LowCountry – butcher birds, Spoonbills, Clapper Rails and more! To watch, click here.
