Hitchcock film series continues with `The Birds'

The Carroll County Arts Council is continuing its series of classic films directed by the master of the thriller genre, Alfred Hitchcock.

Every Friday evening this month, one of Hitchcock's chilling masterpieces is being shown on the big screen at the Carroll Arts Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the movie begins at 7 p.m.

Today's film is 1963's The Birds. It stars Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren and thousands of real birds. In the movie, residents of Bodega Bay are confronted with a malicious, full-scale attack by birds of all shapes and sizes.

Under the guidance of bird trainer Ray Berwick, Hitchcock employed real birds and his own ingenuity to create The Birds.

Tickets are $5 for adults, and $4 for council members, seniors 60 and older, and children 12 and younger.

The Carroll Arts Center is at 91 W. Main St., Westminster.

Decorators are sought for annual wreath contest

The Carroll County Arts Council is seeking decorators for its seventh annual Festival of Wreaths, which will be held Dec. 1 to 5 at the Carroll Arts Center in Westminster.

The public votes for its favorite wreaths, and prizes are awarded in several categories.

The decorated wreaths will be sold to the public through a weeklong silent auction. Last year's event featured 160 wreaths and raised more than $12,000.

This year's event will include wreath-inspired items such as rugs, quilts, floor cloths, paintings and carvings. Items must be hand-crafted and not commercially produced.

All registered wreath decorators will be provided with a 24- inch artificial green wreath at no charge, unless they prefer to create an entry from scratch from other materials.

Decorators must register by Nov. 29. Decorated wreaths are due Dec. 1.

Guidelines and registration forms are available from the arts council or by calling 410-848-7272.
