The Silver Screen Experience: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari with Live Score

  • The Bell House 149 7th Street Brooklyn, NY, 11215 United States (map)

Presented by Kings Theatre and Catskill Jazz Factory in association with Little Cinema

Cult film, jazz and tap dance come together as the Silver Screen Experience launches with a live showing of the early horror classic film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Bringing the silent movie era of the 1920s to life will be a live and originally-commissioned premiere musical accompaniment performed by Chris Washburne’s Rags and Roots.  Drawing on melodies from 1921, the year the film was made, Rags & Roots features an unbelievable septet of top jazz artists including the "best young straight-ahead jazz singer of her generation" (Wall Street Journal) vocal sensation Brianna Thomas, Cleveland native trumpet virtuoso Dominick Farinacci, and New Orleans clarinetist Evan Christopher.

Midwest Record on Chris Washburne/Rags & Roots:
“The bone man blows your mind as he blows your ears open by surrounding himself with a killer array of modern jazzbos who all pull in the same direction. Making classic rags modern and interspersing them with materiality this invites you to take a wild ride.”
