During one of their hotel meet-ups, Marion Crane and her lover Sam Loomis discuss how they cannot afford to get married due to Sam’s debts. When Marion returns to work, she finds that a client has entrusted a large sum of money with her to be deposited in a bank. Feeling down on her luck, Marion decides to steal the money and drive out of town to California where Sam lives, but finds herself caught in a storm. Paranoid about drawing attention from the police, she checks into the Bates Motel, a lonely little place for weary travelers on the side of the highway. However, Marion is about to find out that there are some things worse than being caught by the authorities, leaving Sam and her sister to follow her trail towards the motel’s decidedly odd owner, Norman Bates, in this timeless classic from the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
