Saturday Night at the Baton Rouge Gallery: Movies and Music on the Lawn (Last show of the season)
Featured this Halloween weekend will be Pathe films The Red Sceptre. It may not be a horror movie by today's standards, but it was pretty scary for 1903.

Also showing will be The Fall of the House of Usher (1930), Pathe'’s The Pearl Fisherman(1904) and the science fiction serial The Power God (1925). This is your last chance this year to experience this truly unique event which combines silent vintage films with talented local musicians.
