Expect some fun and games before (and during) the movie, courtesy of the Action Pack, who have promised that they will try their best to not peck your eyes out while you watch the film.

Advance reservations are available by pre-purchasing a $5 food and beverage voucher at the ticketing link to the right, and walk-ins will be allowed for any seats still remaining at show time. There will be plenty of Shiner White Wing available, and we'll all celebrate its availability at this Alamo Drafthouse the best way we know how - by pairing beer with movies.

The story begins as an innocuous romantic triangle involving wealthy, spoiled Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren), handsome Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor), and schoolteacher Annie Hayworth (Suzanne Pleshette). The human story begins in a San Francisco pet shop and culminates at the home of Mitch's mother (Jessica Tandy) at Bodega Bay, where the characters' sense of security is slowly eroded by the curious behavior of the birds in the area. At first, it's no more than a sea gull swooping down and pecking at Melanie's head. Things take a truly ugly turn when hundreds of birds converge on a children's party. There is never an explanation as to why the birds have run amok, but once the onslaught begins, there's virtually no letup. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
