The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari feat. Anvil Orchestra

Milwaukee Film Festival

Widely considered the first horror film, Robert Wiene's 1920 silent German expressionist tale of the mysterious eponymous doctor and his sleepwalking companion, Cesare. With live accompaniment by our friends from the Anvil Orchestra, this screening is not to be missed if you consider yourself a fan of the genre, of cinema history, of innovative music, or if you're looking for an experience you can't get anywhere else.
