This thrilling tale stars John Barrymore as the virtuous Dr. Jekyll who becomes obsessed with the duality of good and evil within the human psyche and formulates a potion to separate the two. In doing so, he unwittingly unleashes his maniacal alter ego, Mr. Hyde, who wreaks havoc in his wake.
While Vizcaya is known as a magnificent structure full of European inspiration, it also served as a place of leisure, enjoyment and relaxation for its owner, James Deering, who frequently hosted events for his friends and family. Experience firsthand what it might have been like to be a guest of Mr. Deering and enjoy movie night in the courtyard of the main house.
This screening series will explore both modern day films that have a fun connection to Vizcaya as well as historical silent films that Mr. Deering and his guests might have viewed in their time. Casual Q&A sessions will follow certain screenings and live organ music will accompany the silent films. Complete the evening with a themed cocktail or traditional movie fare available for purchase.
Tickets, $15, are available onsite only beginning at 6 p.m. on the evening of the program. Seating is limited.
Save the following Thursdays in 2011 for upcoming films in the Viewing Vizcaya Series: Jan. 27 and Feb. 24.
