Back by popular demand... The sinister motel, that strange young man, the sheer terror that lurks behind the shower curtain… the stabbing violins of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho have become the soundtrack to all our nightmares. So this Halloween, what better way to give yourself the fright of your life than with this big-screen showing in Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, with Bernard Herrmann’s chilling music performed live by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra?
