(Paul Leni, US 1928, 89 min., DCP)

Directed by Paul Leni—a German import who established Universal Studios’ atmospheric style with his 1927 Hollywood debut The Cat and the Canary—this chiller about a murder in an apparently cursed theater stands as one of the few true silent whodunits. Theatrical producer Arthur McHugh (Montagu Love) decides to reopen a theater five years after the murder of its lead actor, reunitng the remaining cast to perform the same play. Strange things begin to happen as rehearsals begin, pointing to a supernatural cause. Laura La Plante and a young John Boles star. 

Live piano accompaniment by Dr. Philip C. Carli.
