The Apollo's new DRESS LIKE... series, encourages you to scour your homes and thrift shops for costume themed screenings!
For the first of these we are hoping to have an audience full of participants who have decided to Dress Like... Their Mother!
And what better title to pair with this theme than the story of a young man named Norman Bates...
Phoenix secretary Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), on the lam after stealing $40,000 from her employer in order to run away with her boyfriend, Sam Loomis (John Gavin), is overcome by exhaustion during a heavy rainstorm. Traveling on the back roads to avoid the police, she stops for the night at the ramshackle Bates Motel and meets the polite but highly strung proprietor Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), a young man with an interest in taxidermy and a difficult relationship with his mother.
