Are You Afraid Of Birds?

3/13/2024 at 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Event Description

The Birds

A lecture and social event (think birds and brews)

Presented by Halifax River Audubon

Get ready for a evening of fun and fear, friends and feathers, food and frolic. Halifax River Audubon will explore the dark side of man’s relationship to the birds. The human imagination can see the most benign creatures as monsters and birds have not escaped this treatment. Is the reputation deserved in some cases? We shall see.

The set point for the evening will be an “analysis” of the iconic 1963 film “The Birds”. From the plot to the ornithology all facets of the film will be reviewed. Some critics at the time chose this film as Hitchcock’s most frightening film. (Did they see “Psycho”?)

This presentation encourages audience participation - think Saturday morning kid flicks at the movie theater. There will be trivia questions with prizes. Cheering, booing, random comments and any other verbal forms of disruption are encouraged. There will be finger food and munchies. A cash bar for beverages includes beer and wine offerings. Get up anytime to refill your plate or order a libation.

If you have never been to this theater, you are in for a surprise. The venue is casual club meets the movies. Seating is open, with tables and chairs throughout the space.

Space is limited. We strongly suggest that you reserve your spot. Respond to either of these addresses:
