A special screening of one of the most iconic masterpieces in cinema history is coming on the 100 year anniversary of its premiere in Berlin. Robert Wiene’s Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari changed the direction of the art form irreversibly with its nightmarishly jagged sets, sinister atmospheric and psychological emphasis.
In the wake of its release we saw the emergence of and further development of horror, film noir and gothic cinema.
It will be shown at St Ann’s Church, Dawson Street, Wednesday 26 February. Doors are at 19.00 and the show begins at 19.30.
Tickets are €20 and can be found here.
