New Year Meeting

Saturday 25th January 2020

Film Evening

 

For our traditional New Year film screening, we presented for the first time at a Society event the early silent classic horror The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. This marked the centenary of its original German première in February 1920.

Described by one film critic as "the first true horror film" this is the quintessential example of early German expressionist cinema.

It is justifiably famous for its twisted surreal sets, conveying an impression of the mind of a madman. Is its protagonist actually a delusional lunatic in an asylum, or is his story horrifyingly true? The audience is left to decide.
