Watching movies at home is so… 2020. Don't you miss going to the movies? Don't you love watching a great movie in the company of others, being part of a shared experience? One of the great pleasures in life is watching a good scary movie in a theater, surrounded by strangers who startle, cringe and sometimes laugh together.
This Halloween the Institute will screen the horror classic the mansion of horrors, directed and produced by William Castle in 1959 and starring the iconic Vincent Price. Price is an eccentric millionaire who, along with his fourth wife Anabelle (Carol Ohmart), gathers a group of people to spend the night in a "haunted house" in exchange for $10.000. As the night progresses, increasingly strange events make the fear intensify.
