Ralph Lee’s Procession of Ghouls
Friday, October 25, 2019
at 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm
The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine
1047 Amsterdam Avenue
Friday, October 25, 7 and 10 pm Screening of Nosferatu (1922) with live organ improv followed by puppeteer Ralph Lee’s Procession of the Ghouls
Organist Timothy Brumfield returns to create, on the Cathedral’s Great Organ, a live score to F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) and accompany the procession of Ralph Lee and the Mettawee River Theater Company’s ghosts and ghouls. The full stretch of the nave is at the disposal of Mr. Lee’s fantastic creatures of the night, and visitors should brace themselves for ghostly mischief and ghoulish tricks. Aisle seats are for the bravest at heart, where you’ll come face to face with evil-eyed demon, mossy-nailed witch, or an overfed, ghostly man-child.
There are two showings, 7:00 pm and 10:00 pm.
