Upcoming: The Birds at The Redford Theatre wsg Tippi Hedren
A rare opportunity upcoming on September 28th and 29th to see Hitchcock's masterpiece, The Birds, at the historic Redford Theatre. All 3 shows (8 pm on the 28th, and 2 pm and 8 pm on the 29th) will include a special appearance by Tippi Hedren, the film's iconic star. She will have items for sale and will be available for autographs and photographs. Ms. Hedren has made news recently regarding her challenging working relationship with Alfred Hitchcock, so it certainly seems like a unique opportunity to meet the famous actress in person and hear about her experiences making this extraordinary movie. Tickets are only $5.
The Redford Theatre, opened in 1928, has a Japanese style motif inside, and has very clearly been lovingly restored and maintained over the years by the volunteers. The theatre is own and run by the non-profit Motor City Theatre Organ Society, and houses the theatre's original pipe organ (one of the only in the area). All shows feature organ music prior to the film. If you're a fan of old Hollywood classics that you can't see anywhere else, this is a goregeous, unique place to do it. There are even some great horror classics coming up in time for Halloween - c'mon Halloween silent films accompanied by the organ? Too good to be true!
