26/10/18 London LSO St. Luke’s
Time: 7:30pm. Admission: £15. Age restrictions: All Ages. Following the success of last year’s screening of Nosferatu, The Nomad Cinema, Old Street Partnership and LSO St Lukes have once again teamed up with live score musical geniuses The Cabinet of Living Cinema, to create a chilling performance of The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari. At a local carnival in a small German Town, hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the somnambulist Cesare, who can purportedly predict the future of curious fairgoers. But at night, the doctor wakes Cesare from his sleep to enact his evil bidding… The Cabinet of Dr Caligari makes use of the theatrical manner of stage and sets, but toys with the narrative device of flashback to tell its story. Like an old man telling us a tale, the mysterious narrator with his wide eyes, has his own backstory – and a memorable finale reveals all. The history of cinema harks back to few films that are as important and iconic as The Cabinet of Dr Caligari – the influence of this expressionist masterprice can be seen from Murnau’s Nosferatu through to The Third Man and even Batman Returns. The cinematic experience is a rare treat as the hand-painted backdrops and subtle face make-up can be seen up-close and appreciated in the way it was intended. This classic is scored for the first time by inspired live score musicians – the Cabinet of Living Cinema who recently produced the masterful live score for Nosferatu. This Halloween-tide, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari is brought to life through the live score and the interactive playful nature as film inspires timbre, harmony and texture. The Cabinet of Living Cinema create live cinema events in unusual and inspiring locations. They have scored films by Svankmajer, Jodorowsky, Fritz Lang, Eisenstein and Paradjanov using loop pedals, “found object foley” and orchestral instruments. The screening takes place within the walls of the beautiful, deconsecrated Old Street Church, St Luke’s. Now the home for the London Symphony Orchestra, this space is regularly filled with music from the muses. Under this architectural beacon of Old Street, with its spire that rivals the heights of the more contemporary buildings, lies a crypt of over 1000 burials. Experience this unique screening over the former souls of Old Street – our very own Old Street Symphony of Horror! The film will be a live musical performance over the original film. This Screening is supported by The Old Street Partnership. Buy Tickets More information
