What: Live screening of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) with live score
When: Sunday, March 22
Time: 7 pm
We are very excited to host this special screening of the 1920s German silent horror classic, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Not only will be watching a restored print of this Expressionist classic, we’ll be treated to a live score by gypsy jazz musician Alex Simon and his band.
We’ll be squeezing in as many seats as possible, but encourage everyone to arrive early in order to get a good spot.
Dinner by our friends at Burma Noodle Bar. Menu preview:
- Onion fritters
- Curry beef croquettes
- Tea leaf salad: Fermented Burmese green tea, crispy beans, nuts, and garlic, fresh cabbage and tomato.
