Northern Michigan University’s organization, Culture Shock Film Society, screened Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 thriller, ‘The Birds’.

‘The Birds’ is about a wealthy San Francisco socialite who pursues a potential boyfriend to a small Northern California town. The film begins to take a turn when birds of all kinds suddenly begin to attack people.

The film screening was held from 8:30-11:30 p.m. at West Science in room 2701. All were welcomed and the event was free to the public.

“Culture Shock Film Society is an organization on campus that focuses on indie, art-house, cult and classic films,” said the Culture Shock Film Society Facebook page.

This semester the organization has screened ‘Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father’ and ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’.

Those who were unable to attend the screening of ‘The Birds’ can look forward to future film screenings such as Mel Brooks’ 1974 comedy-horror, ‘Young Frankenstein’ that will be screened on Oct. 14.
