The legend of The Golem—in which a 16th-century rabbi builds a creature from clay to protect Prague’s Jews—found an ideal cinematic setting in the German expressionist style of director Paul Wegener’s 1920 film. Now it also has an evocative score by eclectic jazz-rock guitarist Gary Lucas, a Knitting Factory regular. Lucas presents the Washington premiere of his new instrumental accompaniment with screenings of the film at 7 & 9:30 p.m. at D.C. Jewish Community Center’s Goldman Theatre, 1529 16th St. NW. $13.
