Get in the mood for Halloween by attending a screening of the classic silent horror film, Nosferatu (1922) by F.W. Murnau, on Thur Oct 13 in Sage Chapel with an original score performed live by The Invincible Czars and / or a screening of the newly restored Destiny (1921) by Fritz Lang, on Thur Oct 27, with live piano accompaniment by Dr. Philip Carli.
Both of these events are cosponsored with the Cornell Council for the Arts, the Dept of German Studies, & the Wharton Studio Museum as part of Silent Movie Month in Ithaca!
Then, Sat Oct 29, Cornell Cinema will be dressing up the theatre in their finest cobwebs to host a full day of spooktacular fun! There will be treats aplenty for parents who bring their little goblins to join the costume parade during the IthaKid Film Festival screening of Best of the Fest: Shorts from the New York International Children’s Film Festival at 2pm. And for the older guys and ghouls, Cornell Cinema will host a fantastic costume party and screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Saturday night, the perfect way to start one’s evening of trick or treating! For Halloween purists, we’ll offer a second screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Mon Oct 31!
