Based on the Robert Louis Stevenson novella and considered by many to be the first important American horror film, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde stars John Barrymore (yes, Drew’s grandfather!) playing the dual roles. Jekyll attempts to use science to separate his good and evil personalities with dire results. The Czars have created their most understated, minimal soundtrack to match the introspective, philosophical nature of the film, and incorporated music by Eric Satie and Claude Debussy, for what promises to be a spine-tingling evening.
