Here’s a Valentine’s Day alternative! Using a selection of modern and vintage electronics and homemade sound generators, Thomas Shields will perform an improvised score that is equally beautiful and sinister. Regular Cinecenta prices!

A one-of-a-kind masterpiece of silent cinema and German Expressionism, the title character is a sinister hypnotist on who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) to commit murders.

100% on Rotten Tomatoes!

"This is more than just a textbook classic; the narrative frame creates ambiguities that hold certain elements of the story in disturbing suspension. A one-of-a-kind masterpiece." Chicago Reader"Caligari, the most complete essay in the d├ęcor of delirium, is one of the most famous films of all time, and it was considered a radical advance in film technique, yet it is rarely imitated -- and you'll know why." New YorkerCast Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, Friedrich Feher
