The double feature will begin at noon with the 1945 horror film “House of Dracula,” featuring Arthur I. Appleton’s wife, Martha O’Driscoll. The second film, “Babette’s Feast,” is a 1987 Scandinavian comedy-drama. Beautiful but pious sisters Martine (Birgitte Federspiel) and Philippa (Bodil Kjer) grow to spinsterhood under the wrathful eye of their strict pastor father on the forbidding and desolate coast of Jutland, until one day, Philippa’s former suitor sends a Parisian refugee named Babette (St├ęphane Audran) to serve as the family cook. Babette’s lavish celebratory banquet tempts the family’s dwindling congregation, who abjure such fleshly pleasures as fine foods and wines.

Free for Appleton and Film Series members; included with museum admission fee for nonmembers.
