[ONLINE] Things That Go Bump in the Night: The History and Impact of the Horror Movie

Tuesday, October 267:00—8:00 PMZoom

From the early days of silent cinema through the heyday of the Universal Studios classics of the 1930s and 40s, movie audiences have been thrilled by the suspense, creepiness, and good old-fashioned "jump scares" that horror films offer. Learn about the beginnings of horror cinema, the stories behind your favorite characters, and behind-the-scenes trivia about the making of these classic movies. Film historian Frank Mandosa will bring you all of this, plus clips and trailers, for a newfound appreciation of a genre that has withstood the test of time.

This program has been generously funded by the Friends of the Edgartown Free Public Library.

The Zoom link for this program will open half an hour before the program's start time, so come in a little early, set up your devices, get comfortable, and turn your mic and video off until you are invited to turn them on again. This program will not be recorded.

Registration for this event has now closed.
