Event Description

Lon Cheny Double Feature at The Rotunda

Two silent movies directed by Tod Browning with live musical accompaniment from Lincoln vs. The Moon (Jen Lightfoot and Ed Dymek)!

The Unknown (1927 / 63 minutes)
Wanted murderer Lon Chaney poses as "Alonzo the Armless Wonder." Falling in love with unstable and phobic Joan Crawford, he becomes enraged when a strongman becomes romantic rival, setting the stage for an unforgettable Grand Guignol climax.

The Unholy Three (1925 / 86 minutes)
A sideshow ventriloquist (Lon Chaney), a little person (Harry Earles), and strongman (Victor McLaglen) flee the carny life and form a perverse crime family operating out of a pet shop. Based on a novel by Tod Robbins, the author of "Spurs" the story that inspired Browning's movie Freaks.

Admission is FREE to all screenings. Huge thanks to Penn Cinema Studies for supporting this series!
