Second Friday Silent Film Presents: Nosferatu

See this 1922 classic silent film on the big screen with Music Box Theatre Organist Dennis Scott on the keys!

For the last two years the Music Box Theatre has been a proud host to the Second Saturday Silent Cinema. This October the series moves to Friday night for a very special screening of Nosferatu.

Named by Chicago Magazine as the Best New Film Series of 2011 and recently hailed by the Chicago Reader’s J.R. Jones as one of the best movie matinee series in the city, the Music Box Silent Cinema Series is a wonder of early 20th century film. All films are shown “authentically” in 35mm at proper silent film speed and aspect ratio with live accompaniment by Dennis Scott at the Music Box theatre organ.


Tickets $10 each, $8 for students and seniors.
Available at the Box Office and online.
