About the Event:

As a Halloween treat, our film series will conclude with the 1934 thriller, The Black Cat. As honeymooners Peter (David Manners) and Joan Allison (Julie Bishop) travel to Hungary for their honeymoon, their trip takes a frightful turn: They are forced to spend the night in the ominous modernistic mansion of Satan worshiper Hjalmar Poelzig (Boris Karloff). Only by joining forces with psychiatrist Dr. Vitus Werdegast (Bela Lugosi) can they hope to save themselves.

Howard Mandelbaum and Eric Myers, authors of Screen Deco: A Celebration of High Style in Hollywood, will return to introduce this stylish, striking film, pointing out how its Bauhaus design scheme was specifically used to reflect an atmosphere of encroaching evil.
