Brooklyn, but it sure sounded

CLASSIC HORROR MOVIES!
(CARL DREVER, 1932) 7:00 ONLY
For this film, Dreyer adopted a story from LeFann's In A Glass
Darkly and transformed it into a creation uniquely his own. A
mysterious traveler becomes involved with a town's struggle to
exorcise itself from the gripipf vampires. Dreyer's world of horror
is not born out of physical violence, but exists in the malignancy
of thoughts and the perversion of ideas. A richly atmospheric,
exquisitely rendered and deeply engrossing film. Julian Wast.
TWO WITH BORIS KARLOFF
THIE BLACK CAT
(EDGAR G. ULMER, 1934) 8:45 ONLY
One of the great underground horror classics of the 30's, this
expressively directed mixture of necrophilia, sadism and satanism
tells of a mad architect-soldier. He builds a fantastic structure
on the ruins of a castle he betrayed in the First World War and
stashes the corpses of young girls in glass cases in its under-
ground passages. The quite bizarre film ends with a cimactic
showdown between Boris K rloft and Bela Lugosi.
(GEORGE WAGGNER, 1944)
In a followup to the award-winning PHANTOM OF THE OPERA,
an opera physician lives with the embalmed body of a prima
donna he murdered 20 years before. A beautifully stylized,
chilling work, THE CLIMAX boasts one of Boris Karloff's finest
performances. Susanna Foster, Gale Sondergaard.
Admission $1.25, Double Feature $2.00, Triple Feature $3.00

(FRED COE, 1966)
,JASON ROBARDS-BARBARA HARRIS

Robards plays the unemployed eccentric who must choose between
