Bristol Public Library is pleased to announce a brand new summer program: Classic Movie Corner! On the last Thursday of each month, BPL celebrates film with a special look back at classic movies.

The June feature is Alfred Hitchcock’s classic, The Birds (1963). Starring Rod Taylor and Tippi Hedrin, The Birds starts off in an innocuous neighborhood in San Francisco. Wealthy socialite Melanie Daniels (Hendren) travels to a tiny fishing village in Northern California, a spur-of-the-moment trip to play an innocent trick on her not-quite-boyfriend Mitch Brenner (Taylor). But shortly after she arrives, Melanie finds herself caught in a bizarre and frightening disaster when local birds suddenly begin attacking people.

The show begins at 5:30 on June 29 in the J. Henry Kegley Meeting Room. Popcorn and water will be provided for movie attendees.

Rated PG-13. 120 minutes.
