The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

The Egyptian Theatre is showing the 1920 silent movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari considered by many to be the first true horror filmright in time for Halloween. The unsettling tale of a hypnotist and his dutiful slave has influenced everything from Citizen Kane to Beetlejuice. An example of German Expressionism at its best, see the new, digitally restored version at this special 95th anniversary screening. If that makes a fan out of you, learn more about the striking film at LACMA's Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s exhibition this fall.
