The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari 

When: Fri., Oct. 25, 7:30 p.m. 2019
Price: $12
Jane, Alan and Francis all go to the carnival for fun, but instead are deeply unsettled by one of the acts. Dr. Caligari claims he's the caretaker for a young man named Cesare who has been asleep for more than twenty years; Caligari further claims that when questioned, Cesare can predict the future. Dubious, Alan asks how long he will live, and Cesare predicts he'll be dead by morning. When Cesare's prediction comes true, it spurs Francis to investigate Caligari and his strange charge, with disastrous results. Robert Wiene's silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari was released in 1920, and 99 years later it remains an eerie, disturbing film thanks to its off-kilter set design and stark, haunting lighting. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is screened with a live score composed and performed by Austin's The Invincible Czars at 7:30 p.m. Friday, October 25, at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series). Tickets are $12, and costumes are encouraged.
