What? You haven't seen the ultimate classic silent movie
by Fritz Lang from 1927? What? You haven't heard Bent Knee from Boston who blend carnival, unhinged rock, orchestral epicness, and haunting beauty? Well, maybe you have. And maybe you witnessed this band last time they came to Portland to score the incomparable
Cabinet of Doctor Caligari
. If you did, you know this band killed it. They knocked it out of the park and it is our great pleasure to welcome them back again to put their spin on probably the finest German expressionist sci-fi flick about a futuristic urban dystopia ever made.

Organ Grinders revisits the original vision of the Hollywood Theatre, built in 1926 with an orchestra pit and a hydraulically ascending theatre organ.
