Join us on Halloween for a screening of the 1920 German silent horror film "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari," which tells the tale of a hypnotist who uses a somnambulist to commit murders. Laurie R. Johnson, Professor of Germanic Languages & Literatures, will briefly introduce the film and contextualize its role in the history of German Expressionist cinema. 

Cookies from Rick's Bakery will be served. Everyone is encouraged to come in costume. There will be a prize for the best costume!

This event is free and open to the public.
