Phan­tom du nacht haunts Water­ford

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

There are few events more en­tranc­ing to the se­ri­ous film fan than the pre­sen­ta­tion of a clas­sic silent movie with live mu­si­cal ac­com­pa­ni­ment.

Tonight, in Water­ford’s Christ Church Cathe­dral, Don­ald MacKen­zie, the Scot­tish mas­ter of the cin­ema or­gan, will be lay­ing som­bre chords over FW Mur­nau’s peer­less Nos­fer­atu. The 1922 film, ar­guably the most un­set­tling film ver­sion of the Drac­ula story, should suit the neo-classical con­fines of Christ Church very nicely in­deed. The event be­gins at 10pm and tick­ets can be booked by phone from Garter Lane Arts Cen­tre, 051-855038, www.christ church­wa­ter­ford.com
