Silents in the Library: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde  

1920, 79 Minutes

With live music.

“The story of man’s battle with his own evil side is an ancient, archetypal one, and Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, published in 1886, is a timeless Victorian interpretation that captures the imaginations of modern audiences like no other. It combines fantastical “science”, the misty, gaslit streets of old London and the supernatural to create an atmosphere of horror that is both chilling and thought-provoking.”
