“Lights, Camera, Deco!”

Museum-and-a-Movie Series

In collaboration with the Wolfsonian-FIU

The Wolfsonian–FIU and Miami Beach Cinematheque are teaming up for a summer of art and film with an Art Deco spin! From drama to cult horror and even a musical romance, we’re bringing you Tinseltown talkies from the 1930s to look at how some of Hollywood’s heavyweight directors Deco-fied their elegant, streamlined sets. Join us on select Sundays for a 4pm guided tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market at the museum, followed by a perfectly paired film screening at 5pm across the street at the theater.


Directed by EDGAR G. ULMER/1934/1hr 5min

With Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, David Manners

THE BLACK CAT Spanish handbill, 1934. #MBCarchive

The Black Cat is a 1934 cult-classic horror film centered on a young couple kicking off their honeymoon only to find themselves entrenched in satanic rituals. Drawing inspiration from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis Brown House, this haunted home isn’t your standard crumbling castle! Make it a day of Deco, first through a 4pm tour of Deco: Luxury to Mass Market at The Wolfsonian, then through the demonic sets of The Black Cat across the street at the Cinematheque at 5pm.

A 4pm tour of the Wolfsonian-FIU exhibition
