Silent Films with Live Musical Accompaniment
Annual Halloween Night Only Event
Disney Concert Hall
111 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012
2021 Film: Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1920), starring John Barrymore. After closing through December 31, 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Walt Disney Hall is back in operation, featuring live musical accompaniment by organist Clark Wilson.
It has become an annual October tradition: on Halloween night every year, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles screens a silent horror movie with live musical accompaniment. Titles range from The Phantom of the Opera to Nosferatu to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to The Cat and the Canary; the real appeal, however, is the chance to see the films back by a live “soundtrack” performed on the concert hall’s house organ. The event’s official website encourages you to come experience “sonic thrills and visual thrills.”
