Atlas Presents Silent Film:

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and The Devil’s Assistant

Featuring live, original music by Andrew Earle Simpson

Film begins at 4 pm

Experience vintage silent films the way they were originally presented — with live musical accompaniment!

Our spooky double-bill includes The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, a feature film from 1920 with themes of hypnotism, murder, and insanity. You’ll also be treated to The Devil’s Assistant, a thrilling gem with a red-tinted hellscape that’s sure to send shivers down your spine. Pianist Andrew Earle Simpson will perform the new musical scores he created to enhance the films’ drama.

The Atlas is pleased to offer free popcorn at our Silent Film screenings, and for this special Halloween event, we encourage audience members to attend in costume.

Andrew Simpson’s new DVD release, Whispering Shadows & Devil’s Assistant: A Silent Film, will be available for sale at the Atlas Café.
