Silent Tuesdays. Paul Leni came from Germany to work for Universal in 1927 and was really the founder of the studio’s reputation for horror films, starting with this iconic adaptation of John Willard’s hugely popular “old dark house” play The Cat and the Canary (which surprisingly still gets an occasional outing on the stage even today).

Dryden Kids. Columbia’s nutty musical fantasy was originally intended for kids, but with a script and lyrics cowritten by Theodor Geisel—aka Dr. Seuss—the result was so wonderfully weird it has since found a cult following among grown-up aficionados of the outré and flat-out strange. Free for ages 17 & younger.
