#920: Cathedral of St. John the Divine

Perhaps a functional church doesn’t seem the likeliest of places to attend a screening of the first (intentional) horror movie accompanied by live organ music, followed by a parade of ghouls and other demonic figures.

Perhaps it seems practically anti-religious to view The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari after watching a skeleton play the cello.
