Bardavon screens The Silence of the Lambs on Friday

The Bardavon commences its 2019/20 film series with the landmark thriller The Silence of the Lambs on Friday, October 4. The film’s five Academy Awards are the least of its claims to fame. Jonathan Demme’s masterpiece is a cultural institution, its scenes enshrined in the collective imagination, quotable by all as if it were the dark counterpart to Caddyshack. Mini-concerts on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ take place 30 minutes before each film at the Bardavon. Admission costs a mere $6.
