Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive

Director: Eric Stange 

(2017, 84 minutes)

Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive draws on the rich palette of Poe’s evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to tell the real story of the notorious author. Featuring Tony Award-winning and Emmy-nominated actor Denis O’Hare, this special preview screening explores the misrepresentations of Poe as an alcoholic madman akin to the narrators of his horror stories and reveals the way in which Poe tapped into what it means to be a human being in our modern world. Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive premieres on the American Masters series Monday, October 30 at 9 pm on THIRTEEN and nationwide on PBS.

Friday, October 20, 7 pm

Free with Museum admission.
