Old Town Music Haunt 2017

The Old Town Music Hall presents its annual Halloween program in October, “Old Town Music Haunt.” This year’s quartet of classic horror films is Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1920) starring John Barrymore; Nosferatu (1922), based on the novel Dracula; The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1922), an Expressionist classic; and The Phantom of the Opera (1925), starring Lon Chaney.

These black-and-white silent films will be screened with live organ accompaniment on the theatre’s Mighty Wurlitzer, which quite literally includes all the bells and whistles. Expect a full evening’s fun, with pre-movie organ music, an audience sing along, and a comedy short; followed by an intermission before the feature.

The complete schedule is:

  • Oct 6 – 7 – 8: DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE
  • Oct 13 – 14 – 15:  NOSFERATU
  • Oct 20 – 21 – 22: THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI
  • Oct 27 – 28 – 29: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

Showtimes are Friday at 8:15pm, Saturday at 2:30pm and 8:15pm, and Sunday at 2:30pm.

Old Town Music Hall is located at 140 Richmond Street  in El Segundo, 90245. Call (310) 322-2592 for more info.
