PSYCHO

N.C. MUSEUM OF ART--A spine-tingling thriller with a monumental impact on audiences everywhere, it's hard to believe that Hitchcock used a scaled-down budget and a borrowed crew to create this cinematic masterpiece. Yet, even with it's slimmed-down production ethics, the film still achieved epic status, combining both the tenets of the popular exploitation film and classic French noir to create a visceral mood that left audiences shocked. Although the film has lost some of its impact in the face of the blood-bathed horror flicks of today, it's still worth watching for its quiet interpretation of the human psyche and the exploitation of our deepest, darkest fears. The flick rolls at 9 p.m., and tickets are $3. --Kathy Justice

RHYTHMICITY!

EXPLORIS--A percussion group grown out of the Raleigh Drum Circle gatherings, Rhythmicity brings world beats to city streets. Their repertoire includes African and Afro-Cuban drumming styles that the group incorporates into a performance celebrating multiple cultures and world unity through rhythm. Dance to the beat at 2 p.m. for free. --Kathy Justice
