Thursday, Oct 31 2019 8:00 PM Thursday, Oct 31 2019 10:00 PM America/New_York Screening of "The Haunting" (1963) OPEN TO PUBLIC | Celebrate Halloween at a screening of the 1963 horror classic "The Haunting," presented as part of programming for "Queer Paranormal (an exhibition concerning Shirley Jackson and The Haunting of Hill House)" on view at Usdan Gallery and the Jennings music building. Tishman Lecture Hall Bennington College

OPEN TO PUBLIC | Queer Paranormal presents a range of artistic practices “haunted” by historical, political and sexual difference. Jackson's novel and this iconic black-and-white film version are jumping-off points for the exhibition, which identifies queerness in themes, including the uncanny, the stranger, and the haunted house as undiscovered country and objects of desire. Selected by Martin Scorsese as his number one scariest movie of all time, The Haunting was directed by Robert Wise and stars Julie Harris, Claire Bloom and Russ Tamblyn.
