Keep the danse macabre going! Enjoy a bloody cocktail and costume contest before a live performance of the cult film Carnival of Souls. Live cinema is a combination of actors, sound design, and live music. All music is performed live, and dialogue is performed live by a troupe of actors, using a combination of mechanical and digital sound design. The result is an immersive audiovisual environment.
Special cocktail (not included in admission price) available in West Building.
Carnival of Souls
(1962) Directed by Herk Harvey. Candace Hilligoss, Frances Feist, Sidney Berger. (78 min.) PG.
The film’s atmosphere and creeping tone, accentuated by a haunting organ score, have influenced horror films from The Sixth Sense to Night of the Living Dead. Church organist Mary, the sole survivor of a car wreck, moves to Utah to begin a new life, but she is haunted by a ghoulish figure known only as The Man. Equal parts eerie and fun, Carnival lingers in the viewer’s mind long after the infamous final shot fades to black.
