CineSpin: The Unholy Three

Free Admission!

Join the BAMPFA Student Committee for the 2019 edition of CineSpin, where local student musicians and DJs provide live musical accompaniment to great films. Justifiably one of the most celebrated collaborations between director Tod Browning and star Lon Chaney, The Unholy Three centers on a trio of sideshow performers—a ventriloquist, a strongman, and a dwarf—who, after an incident during a show, find themselves looking for a new profession. Applying their skills to a life of crime, they take on surprising guises for a plot to purloin a ruby necklace.
