The Golem: A Film Screening to Celebrate Halloween
The Historical Society of Rockland County invites you to join us for

The Golem: How It Came into the World
A Film Screening to Celebrate Halloween

When: Thursday, October 31, 2019, 7:15 pm
Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City
Admission: $FREE (but reservations are required. Also donations are welcome)

Released in 1920, The Golem: How He Came into the World is widely credited as the first movie in the horror genre. It has even been called a precursor to Universal Studios 1931 classic Frankenstein.

Set in the Jewish ghetto of medieval Prague, the film begins with Rabbi Loew, the head of the city's Jewish community, reading the stars. He predicts disaster for his people and brings his assistant to inform the elders of the community. After the Holy Roman Emperor signs a decree threatening to expel the Jews, Loew begins to look for ways to defend his people. He uses magic to bring the Golema clay figureto life, but things quickly start to go terribly wrong.

The Golem was directed by Paul Wegener, who also plays the films title character. The film critic Leonard Maltin gave The Golem three-and-a-half out of four stars, calling it a chilling, visually dazzling story of the supernatural, based on a famous Jewish folktale of the 16th century.

In honor of Halloween, we'll screen the full 85minute version of the film. For this family-friendly program, people of all ages are encouraged to come in costume.

As a courtesy to fellow guests, please arrive early to avoid interruptions. The screening will begin promptly at 7:15 pm. Latecomers with reservations may forfeit their seats. Walk-ins will be admitted only if space permits.
