WIN SCARY FREE TICKETS: A Night of Symphony & Horror: Nosferatu, hosted by the Detroit No. 2 Lodge of Masons - Jack White Theatre Masonic Detroit - SAturday 10/25/14
It's been called one of the quintessential silent classics of all time, screening, for one night only, in one of Detroit's historic gems with live accompaniment on the historic Skinner organ, and all just in time for Halloween. A Night of Symphony & Horror: Nosferatu, hosted by the Detroit No. 2 Lodge of Masons, will take place at the Jack White Theatre inside The Detroit Masonic Temple on Saturday, October 25, 2014, at 6 p.m.
Stephen James Warner will perform an original score on the historic Skinner Organ as the film plays.
"Masonic Events is planning a great evening that should appeal to anyone who loves being in the city of Detroit," said Jim Merrill, Membership Director of Detroit No. 2 Lodge of Masons. "We're so excited to bring this film with the live organ soundtrack to such a haunting, historic venue."
In addition to the film, the evening will include drinks (cash bar on the lower level for general admission ticket holders, VIP on the mezzanine), a masquerade with voting and prizes for the best costume, live music and an after-party. All attendees are encouraged to come in costume, though it's not required.
"Nosferatu," an unauthorized and controversial adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," was originally released in 1922. Following a lawsuit by Stoker's heirs over the unauthorized adaptation, the film was ordered to be destroyed. One copy remained and came to be regarded as "an influential masterpiece of cinema."
Tickets, available now through Ticketmaster, are $30 for general admission and $90 for VIP, which includes box seats, open bar, band performances, unique access to the temple and a private pre-party. Student and senior citizen discounts are available at the box office.
