M at the IMA

There's a great classic film at The Indianapolis Museum of Art's Tobias Theatre on Saturday. We watch M every year around Halloween. Two of the great things that it has going for it are that it is from director Fritz Lang and that it stars Peter Lorre. It's an eerie tale of a child murderer that is haunting because of the scenes that it shows you, like the mother waiting for her child to come home for lunch, rather than the ones it doesn't, like the actual murder itself.

The IMA is matching this up with a South Korean film also entitled M and calling their double feature "M&M". Aren't they clever? We guess it's a no brainer as to what movie snack to have with them.
