The mother of all thrillers (get it?), Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho made “Norman Bates” a household name, broke new ground in its depiction of screen violence and suggestion of sex, and inspired thousands to lock the bathroom door while taking a shower. Starring Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh, and Vera Miles. (109 mins., 35mm)
