EVENT! The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari at Disney Hall!

Ok all you West Coasters who were really jealous of us East Coasters who have the opportunity to see this great movie and hear a great organist – you have your own showing! This information was passed on to us by publicist Vanessa Fine via our Readerboard Post feature:

Halloween Silent Film: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with Live Organ

Sunday, October 30, 7:30pm at Walt Disney Concert Hall

Clark Wilson, organ

Organ virtuoso Clark Wilson will improvise an appropriately atmospheric sound track on Walt Disney Concert Hall’s magnificent pipe organ for this groundbreaking 1920 silent film, one of the earliest, most influential and artistically acclaimed films in the German Expressionist genre, directed by Robert Wiene.

  1. This is all well and good, but WHY not use a MOVIE Palace with an appropriate organ already in place? I speak, of course, of the Orpheum on Broadway. Or is this location unsuitable for folks who consider that part of town “off limits” for their tastes (it’s only down the street seven or eight blocks)? How much more good would could be done for the forlorn Broadway theatres, than to attract a first class performance of this magnificent film accompanied on the PROPER instrument?
