‘Mr. Sardonicus’

7:30 p.m. in the Library of Congress Packard Theater, 19053 Mount Pony Rd. in Culpeper. Prolific and innovative filmmaker William Castle made a departure from his usual horror formula with this 1961 film, a serious Gothic tale set in Europe during the 19th Century. Castle assembled a mostly European cast for the film including British actor Guy Rolfe as the title character, a man whose face becomes frozen in a horrifying grin while robbing his father’s grave to obtain a winning lottery ticket. Free. Request ADA accommodations at 202/707-6362 or
