8:00 PREVIEW SCREENING

AMERICAN MASTERS EDGAR ALLAN POE: BURIED ALIVE draws on the rich palette of Poe's evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to tell the real story of the notorious author. The film, featuring Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor, Denis O'Hare, explores the misrepresentations of Poe as an alcoholic madman akin to the narrators of his horror stories. It reveals the way in which more than any other writer of his time, and even our own ti, Poe tapped into what it means to be a human being in our modern and sometimes frightening world.

In the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe and the upcoming Halloween festivities, we invite guests to dress up in Poe-inspired attire.
