Silent Movie Night With Live Piano: The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari

Saturday, October 1, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Dr Caligari

Join pianist Jeff Thomas as he plays live accompaniment to one of the scariest movies ever made!

“Arguably the first true horror film, 1921’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari set a brilliantly high bar for the genre — and remains terrifying nearly a century after it first stalked the screen.”

At a carnival in Germany, Francis (Friedrich Feher) and his friend Alan (Rudolf Lettinger) encounter the crazed Dr. Caligari (Werner Krauss). The men see Caligari showing off his somnambulist, Cesare (Conrad Veidt), a hypnotized man who the doctor claims can see into the future. Shockingly, Cesare then predicts Alan’s death, and by morning his chilling prophecy has come true — making Cesare the prime suspect. However, is Cesare guilty, or is the doctor controlling him?

And before our feature presentation there will be two classic silent horror shorts to prepare you for the terror of The Cabinet of Dr Caligari!

Tickets are $15
