Coolidge at The Greenway: The Birds
Experience cinema classics under the stars with this free, outdoor summer film series entirely presented on 35mm.
Screenings will take place at sunset at the Greenway’s Wharf District Park (located between Milk and India Streets in Boston).
Nothing equals The Birds for sheer terror when Alfred Hitchcock unleashes his foul friends in one of his most shocking and memorable masterpieces. Before the film, Harvard evolutionary biologist and ornithologist Dr. Scott V. Edwards will discuss the molecular evolution of birds.
As beautiful blonde Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren) rolls into Bodega Bay in pursuit of eligible bachelor Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor), she is inexplicably attacked by a seagull. Suddenly thousands of birds are flocking into town, preying on schoolchildren and residents in a terrifying series of attacks. Soon Mitch and Melanie are fighting for their lives against a deadly force that can’t be explained and can’t be stopped in one of Hollywood’s most horrific films of nature gone berserk.
Rain Date: Thursday, 6/16
