1920 · d. Robert Wiene
Starring Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Lil Dagover
Celebrate the spookiest weekend of the year with this silent film classic, both screenings of which feature an original live score performed by the teenage musicians of School of Rock Main Line. With its dramatic shadows, disorienting angles, and ominous atmosphere, this tale of a sinister hypnotist and his sleepwalking pawn paved the way for film noir and horror cinema to come.
Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, online, using the showtimes listed below the “Buy Tickets” heading. The Box Office is open for ticket sales 30 minutes prior to the first show of the day.
