Movie Night

On Saturday, October 27, 2012, Scott Paulson and the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra will add some aural flavor to a late-night, double feature picture show at the New Village Arts Theatre with the 1920s version of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde starring John Barrymore and F.W. Murnau’s 1922 classic Nasferatu.

The audience will assist with some of the sound effects and musical gestures to accompany the films–Scott Paulson, of the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra for Silent Films, will provide some quick training: Play on a real Theremin, if you dare! Strike the thunder-sheet! Crank up the wind machine! Play an orchestral harp in the pit orchestra! Rattle some ritual percussion instruments!

Tickets $16 ($10 for just one film) and $8 for kids under 18. The first film begins at 7 PM with Nasferatu screening at 11 PM. The New Village Arts Theatre is located at 2787 State Street in Carlsbad, California. For more information, click the link.
