MOVIES & MUSIC: ‘THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI’ & THOU
September 29, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$9
Be there on Friday, September 29 as Movies & Music on the Lawn screens one of the most influential and respected gems of the silent film era, “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” (1920). The film was a triumph of German expressionism and was once called by film critic Roger Ebert, “arguably the first true horror film” and today has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Completely recontextualizing the film with an original score, performed live at Movies & Music on the Lawn, will be Baton Rouge sludge metal band, Thou.
The band has been a popular touring act internationally after first coming together in 2005. The band’s fourth album, “Heathens,” was met with critical acclaim upon its 2014 release with Pitchfork naming it the best metal album of the year.
Join us for a unique Movies & Music pairing with one of the most acclaimed horror films ever and a band whose sound has been described (by critic Gregory Heaney) as blending “the shuddering heaviness of doom with the oppressive atmospherics of black metal, giving the band a monolithic sound that feels, at times, inescapable.”
