Dr. Caligari w/Live Organist


Friday, October 4th  |  10:30 PM

"The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" with Live Accompaniment


On Friday, October 4th, Chicago based silent film organist, Jay Warren, will provide a photoplay score for the early 21st century German Expressionist silent film THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920) at The Logan Theatre.

A forty-year veteran of silent film accompaniment, Warren is passionate about preserving silent film music, a genre in danger of “slipping through the cracks.”

Logan Theatre audiences attending THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI will be treated to an authentic 1920s-style film experience, with Warren bringing in his specially designed digital Mighty Wurlitzer theater organ to provide the photoplay accompaniment. The theatre organ – a genuine American phenomena - was the workhorse of the silent film era. Dynamically superior to the piano and more spontaneous than an orchestra, it is truly “the voice of the silent cinema.”


Tickets are $13 and on sale now.
