In anticipation of the historic film’s 100th-anniversary premiere in Berlin, Feb 26th, 1920, this repertory screening will feature live music based on the Expressionist composers of Europe, who were active at the time of the film’s release. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari gave birth to the psychological thriller and horror genres in film and it is a tour de force of Modern painting, architecture, acting, and music.
