Cinema Nairn will get into the Halloween spirit by screening the first half of its double bill at 6.00pm, “The Ghost Goes West”. This cult comedy from the 1930s is about a Scottish castle shipped to America along with its resident kilted ghost.
The Highlander who does the haunting is suave Robert Donat, best known for his role as Hannay in Hitchcock’s "The 39 Steps". The film is a 'U' certificate and bound to delight all ages.
The public vote for the second half of the double bill, resulted in "Psycho" winning with 40% of the votes cast.
Pyscho (1960, Certificate 15) is Hitchcock's masterpiece of the macabre, starring Anthony Perkins as the troubled Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. As for the famous shower scene – it took seven days to shoot and seventy camera setups for just forty-five seconds of footage.
