Chicago Outdoor Film Festival: Psycho

The 2009 Chicago Outdoor Film Festival continues this evening with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock's classic shocker Psycho. The film will be shown at Butler Field in Grant Park (at Monroe and Lake Shore Drive). Admission to the film is free. The films begin at sunset, but you'll probably want to arrive earlier to pick out a choice spot. See the Outdoor Film Festival Website for a complete schedule of films.
