Skip the trick-or-treating crowds and enjoy a Halloween evening screening of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film Nosferatu, with a live organ score provided by Timothy Howard on Pasadena Presbyterian Church’s iconic Æolian-Skinner pipe organ.

Dr. Howard recorded his accompaniment for a restored 1991 re-issue of the film on video cassette and videodisk. Since a significant portion of the score is improvised, no two performances are identical. The score also features organ repertoire dating from the 19th century by Franz Liszt, Gabriel Pierné, Julius Reubke, and others.
Pasadena Presbyterian Church’s recently upgraded video projectors mean you’ll see the film’s larger-than life characters in vivid monochrome on tinted backgrounds, just like the original release.
