Lorre at the Heurich House, Washington DC

Peter Lorre fans in the Washington DC are in for a special Halloween treat on Friday, October 28, 2016 – a showing of Peter’s first sound movie M (1931), followed by a special after-dark tour of the historic Heurich House Museum.

Doors open at 6 pm. M begins at 6:30 pm in the Conservatory. Guests are encouraged to bring their own blankets. Come in costume!

Following M, guests will be invited to tour all three floors of the home, from the basement boiler room to the doll collection in the second floor bedrooms. The Heurich House Museum, also known as the Brewmaster’s Castle, was the home of German immigrant Christian Heurich, his wife Amelia, and their children. Christian and Amelia Heurich were spiritualists who regularly attended séances. The Museum staff hopes there will be no “spirit activity” that night!

Guests must be 21 years or older to attend, as alcoholic refreshments will be served.

Admission is $20 for all seats and includes the film, refreshments, and tours of the house. Reservations may be made on-line through the Heurich House website. For more information, please call the Heurich House at 202-429-1894.
