Elmhurst Public Library
Large Meeting Room

Event Details

Join film critic, author, and editor-in-chief of Sun-Times Media Local Robert K. Elder for a delightful foray into silent film classics. Screening films from the 1920s that Sandburg himself reviewed while film critic for the Chicago Daily News, Elder will provide context and background for modern-day filmgoers during the ongoing series. Considered one of the best horror movies of the silent film era, the sinister Dr. Caligari is a “mad doctor” who, along with his sleepwalking companion, is accused of murder. Watch "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" (1920, horror, 71 minutes).
