Following last year’s sell-out success of ‘Der Golem’, Christ Church Cathedral is delighted to welcome back acclaimed, eclectic music ensemble, 3epkano, performing a live score to the legendary Gothic classic, ‘The Cabinet of Dr Caligari’.

A huge commercial and critical success in its day, it is one of the most influential films of the German Expressionist movement and considered the first true horror film as well as introducing the ‘twist ending’ in cinema. It was inspired by the unsolved murder of a girl during a carnival and was directed by acclaimed German director Robert Wiene with renowned Expressionist designers Hermann Warm, Walter Roehrig and Walter Reimann, all affiliated to the magazine Sturm and who created the innovative painted sets that included distorted perspectives, twisted shapes and sharp angles.

The film tells the tale of showman, Dr Caligari (Werner Krauss), who appears in a small town with his marvel, Cesare the Somnambulist (Conrad Veidt), a man who has been asleep for 23 years and is now under Caligari’s murderous, hypnotic control. At night, he slithers through the town murdering people on the doctor‘s orders until a young student becomes suspicious when his friend is found dead. As a series of disturbing events unfold, the townspeople discover a truth, hiding something even more sinister then they could ever have imagined.

3epkano are a Dublin based collective, formed by Cameron Doyle and Matthew Nolan, who are dedicated to producing original soundtracks to silent, avant-garde, and contemporary cinema. Since 2004, the group have played numerous headline shows in both Ireland and the US to huge critical acclaim.

Tickets are now on sale and cost €15 per person and are available from or by calling 01 677 8099.
Doors open at 7.15pm and the screening will begin at 8pm sharp.
