The silent movie “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,” considered to be the first true horror movie, will be featured at the Coleman Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 25.
Showtime is 7:30 p.m. and reserved seating is required.
The silent movie will feature live music by Gideon Freudmann, a cello innovator who has created his own style of music called CelloBop -- a fusion of blues, jazz, folk and much more. His original scores for silent films incorporate classical, jazz, folk and world music elements.
Working with an electric cello and real-time electronic effects, Freudmann creates elaborate sound textures, haunting melodies and driving rhythms that beautifully enhance and energize the imagery of silent films.
“The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” is a 1920 German silent horror film directed by Robert Wiene from a screenplay by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer. It is one of the most influential films of the German Expressionist movement and, according to Roger Ebert, is “the first true horror film.” The film is also credited with having introduced the twist ending in cinema.
Ticket prices are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and $10 for students. This film is not recommended for younger audiences.
