Relatives of wealthy Cyrus West gather for the reading of his will and spend a frightful night in his mansion, where they are stalked by “The Cat,” a mysterious escapee from the local asylum, who claws his victims like canaries. Directed by German Expressionist filmmaker Paul Leni, this 1927 classic silent film is accompanied by Clark Wilson on Walt Disney Concert Hall’s incredible organ for an extra eerie feel.
