A favourite silent film of mine and many other fabulous folk, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, is going to be screened this friday at 8pm over at First United Church, on king and william in Waterloo. And it's going to be backed by live music. Holy hells yes. Check out the NUMUS organisation's website for their 2010 schedule.
The 1920 film is German expressionism at it's best, and is filled with long dark shadows and spidery, crooked roads sided by spidery, crooked buildings. A weird world of fantastical evil and bizarre psychoses: this is the stuff that Tim Burton draws from.
Tickets are $24 a pop or $10 for students, and should be a wicked-cool time. Be there or be square! Square. Worst of shapes.
