Avant rock trio present their score to the German Expressionist film The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari, a masterpiece of the silent era. The score was commissioned by the Walker Art Center, and first presented as the concluding event of their Summer Movies & Music series this year. The combination was too inspired to be just performed once, and the lead-up to Halloween the perfect time for a movie that dwells in the shadows of madness. The Cedar is proud to collaborate with Brute Heart in providing this second chance to see the movie with the live score, with insane set designs by Jonathan Kaiser (infinity rooms!) with shadow projections by Christopher Allen and soundscapes by MAKR to open (between 7 and 8pm). A recording of the score and tshirts will be available to buy too! You must become Caligari!

The Cedar is now air-conditioned for your year-round comfort!
