Newly restored in stunning 4K, the Bates Motel opens its doors once again. Featuring 13 seconds of restored footage which had been cut by the censors after the initial theatrical release, it can now been seen how it was originally seen in cinemas in 1960, exactly as intended by Alfred Hitchcock.

An adaptation of Robert Bloch’s novel of the same name, the story follows Marion (Janet Leigh) a young secretary on the run with $40,000 stolen from her employer, hoping to start a new life with her lover in California.

Wracked with guilt and increasingly paranoid, Marion takes refuge at a motel when a storm takes hold. There, she meets the polite but highly strung Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) who runs the motel under the domination of his mother.

Controversial at the time of its release but now considered one of Hitchcock’s best films, Psycho is a masterpiece of suspense, featuring impressive camerawork, brilliant lead performances, an unforgettable score from Bernard Herrmann and one of the most iconic scenes in horror; this film will make you think twice before stepping into the shower.

Named number one on the AFI’s 100 Years...100 Thrills list, this infamous film has become a cultural phenomenon. Psycho is “still terrifying after all these years” (Leonard Maltin’s Classic Movie Guide).
