Halloween at Cornell Cinema

featuring the late George Romero’s ‘Night of Living Dead’ shown in a brand new digital restoration

Celebrate Halloween at Cornell Cinema! Get in the mood by attending a screening of the early American horror film, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920), on Thursday, October 12 in Sage Chapel with an original score performed live by the Austin-based group The Invincible Czars, who wowed the audience last year with their score for Nosferatu (1922).

Then, on Saturday, October 28, Willard Straight Theatre will be dressed up in the finest cobwebs to host a full day of spooktacular fun! There will be treats aplenty if you bring your little goblins to join the costume parade during our IthaKid Film Festival screening of The LEGO Batman Movie at 2pm. And for the older guys and ghouls, there will be a fantastic costume party/contest and screening of Edgar Wright’s hilarious Shaun of the Dead on Saturday night, the perfect way to start your evening of trick or treating!

And to top it all off, Cornell Cinema is offering two screenings of the spectacular new digital restoration of the classic zombie film, Night of the Living Dead, in honor of the late George Romero, who passed away in July. The film had a major influence on Jordan Peele’s Get Out!
