Not So Silent Cinema presents "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"


Join us for a screening of the 1920 silent film, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Based on Robert Louis Stevenson's novella and starring famed stage and screen actor John Barrymore, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde examines the duality of human nature and the ethics of medical experimentation and features an astounding on-screen transformation. 

The film will be paired with a brief introductory lecture on ethics and experimentation in medicine.

Mütter Museum admission is included in the ticket price and the museum will be open from 5:30-6:30, as well as a cash bar and complimentary pretzels upstairs. The lecture and film screening will begin promptly at 6:45 and no one will be admitted past that point.

5:30PM-6:30PM Reception/Museum Open
6:45PM-8:30PM Program (Lecture and Screening)

Speaker to be announced.
