The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari (1920, Germany, Robert Wiene, 72 minutes, b&w, DVD)—In this silent 1920s masterpiece, an insane asylum inmate explains to his psychiatrist how he came to the institution, telling the shrink the story of the evil hypnotist Caligari and his unwitting pawn, the sleepwalker Cesare. This stark expressionist film from German director Robert Wiene astonishes with the power of its sets and visuals, and the creepy plot easily raises hackles on the back of one’s neck. The Dynamo Café will offer 2-for-1 beer and wine from 6-9pm on Dyno’Nites, specially designed as a venue for the local community to present their talent and knowledge.
