The chills of Halloween are fast approaching, and Newcastle Castle has lined up a very special event for Sunday 30th October, with a screening of Robert Wiene’s silent masterpiece The Cabinet of Dr Caligari.
Brought together by The OPH Collective, alongside the screening we’re set for musical accompaniment to it, that will dish out the best sounds in the Great Hall of the Castle for a chance to bring Halloween in as it should be. It’s a creepy, carnival-themed special event for one of the most iconic films in cinematic history. Hypnotist Dr. Caligari thrusts the story forward as he tried to coerce somnambulist Cesare to enact his evil bidding. With a live soundtrack featuring guitars, feedback, recorders, machinery and more, it’ll all aid in the film providing some real horror throughout the night.
