Edward Gorey Documentary at the Chatham Orpheum Theater

If you were one of the disappointed Edward Gorey fans who couldn’t get into our Sunday Screening in Cotuit, we have good news: we've added another screening!

Cape Cod filmmaker Christopher Seufert and Edward Gorey’s cousin Ken Morton will be screening The Last Days of Edward Gorey at the Chatham Orpheum Theater on Saturday March 22nd at 10am. This is a documentary in the making and we’ll get a peek at the process and challenges of completing a film when your subject dies halfway through the project. After the show we have a Q&A with the filmmakers! 

The event is free, but tickets are limited and must be reserved in advance. Click here for ticket information.

We hope to see you there!
