What a great way to spend the evening... watching an old silent movie with a live jazz band that made the movie all that much more enjoyable. I hope to see more events like this.

This was a real surprise. Classic theatre, old flick, and a great orchestra, what a combination!

The film itself was fantastic. A true classic horror movie with real tension and drama. The live score, which ranged from discordant horns and keyboard to hard-driving rock, was very jarring and often drowned out the more nuanced moments of the film.
