Old-fashioned thrill-seekers are in for a treat starting tonight,  with a series of classic movie screenings planned at local theaters over the next few months.

Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 horror film "The Birds" will kick off the series of four newly restored films, which are being screened nationwide, including at nearly two-dozen Bay Area theaters.

The series coincides with Universal Pictures' 100th anniversary.

"The Birds," filmed in Bodega Bay, will be screened at theaters in Alameda, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, Marin and Napa  counties.

The screenings begin at 7 p.m. today at selected theaters.

On Oct. 24, in time for Halloween, retouched versions of  "Frankenstein" and "The Bride of Frankenstein" will be screened.

The fourth film, "To Kill a Mockingbird," will be shown on Nov. 15.

The four films are presented on behalf of Turner Classic Movies and will include a filmed introduction by TCM host and movie buff Robert Osborne.
