The 1944 thriller GASLIGHT inspired the term “gaslighting” to describe cruel, deceptive mind games played by one spouse upon the other. Director Anna Biller, a longtime connoisseur of cinematic tales of torment, curated a weekend of these films, including her new THE LOVE WITCH and such classics as ROSEMARY’S BABY and Alfred Hitchcock's DIAL M FOR MURDER.

Join us for some of the greatest films to ever celebrate love in its many forms.
