The fall “Films and Finger Foods” event of the Kohlenberg Lyceum Series will screen the classic Vincent Price horror film “House on Haunted Hill” at 7 p.m. Oct. 28 in the Del and Norma Robison Planetarium.

Price performed at Truman more than any other university in the country. He established the Vincent Price Theatrical Performance Scholarship, a legacy that continues to support Truman students today.
Originally released in 1959, “House on Haunted Hill” features Price as an eccentric millionaire who invites five people to a “haunted house” party. Guests who stay in the house for one night will earn $10,000. As the night progresses, the guests are trapped within the house with an assortment of terrors.

This event is free and open to the public. Because seating is limited and food is provided, the courtesy of an RSVP is requested by clicking here, or by contacting the Office of Advancement at 660.785.4133 or

This season’s Kohlenberg Lyceum schedule includes two installments of the popular “Films and Finger Foods” events incorporated into the series last year. A second “Films and Finger Foods” event is scheduled May 4 for a movie to be announced.
