Movies in the park season is almost over. To honor the end of it, consider taking in The Hands of Orlac in the cemetery. The 1924 silent flick follows Orlac, a talented pianist who loses the use of his hands. His abilities are salvaged after receiving a hand transplant, but whose hands were they originally? And are the hands... evil? Idle Hands (1999)—and many other movies—obviously took some inspiration from this film. The screening, which begins at dusk, will feature live musical accompaniment by Spider Hospital, a group made up of members of Dreamland Faces and the Poor Nobodys.
