A classic of expressionist Weimar silent cinema with live electro-acoustic score.
The carnival has arrived in a small German town. Hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the mysterious sleepwalking man, Cesare, who he claims can predict the future. But Cesare’s arrival coincides with a spate of murders takes place in the dead of night… Nightmarishly jagged sets, sinister atmospherics and disturbing psychology combine in this justly celebrated classic of early cinema.
Musicians Ben Gaunt, Naomi Perera, and Rob Bentall scored last year’s Old Woollen performance of Nosferatu and they return to weave their sonic magic with another creepy classic.
PLUS! A rare showing of Edison Studio’s 1910 version of FRANKENSTEIN.
Running times – Frankenstein 16mins; The Cabinet of Dr Caligari 75mins. There will be a short break between the films.
