Squeakeasy Film Series & Sugar City present:

Brett DeNeve:

The Squeakeasy Film Series, offered on the last Wednesday of every month, is back with a night full of Halloween-themed activities for round two: Jean Epstein’s 1928 adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s gothic masterpiece  “The Fall of the House of Usher.” The series itself is dedicated to showcasing complex, oftentimes provocative art-house films not only to expose certain individuals to parts of culture that may have been bypassed in their upbringing, but also to bring together the likes of those who truly appreciate such cinematic works.


The screening series is taking place at The Backroom, located at Allen St. Hardware, 245 Allen St. This particular event will start at 8 p.m. this Wednesday, with a $7 general admission fee that will be waived for Squeaky Wheel members. This will get you entrance to the venue, but beware as plans for the night entail much more than

the-fall-of-the-house-of-usher-1928-image-normalEpstein’s haunting visuals; a soundtrack to the film will be performed live by Kevin Cain, musician, artist, and former director of The Vault.

Might I note that he composed this himself? Anyone who got to witness his last live-soundtrack performances to “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligai” earlier this year knows this venue’s atmosphere is sure to be full of deep-moving, tastefully creepy sounds. After the film, participants will be welcomed to stick around for a Halloween-themed dance party featuring the Sugar City DJs.

This live cinema costume party with Squeaky Wheel, Sugar City, and Cain himself will prove to be a great second coming of the Squeakeasy Film Series. Will number three be able to top this act?

Stay tuned.
