Halloween weekend at UCLA, Silent-Film Horror and Sci-Fi LIVE

UCLA Live has a couple of events over the next few weeks for horror/sci-fi lovers–a chance to see two classic genre silent films on a big screen in a beautiful theater (Royce Hall) with live music.

This Saturday night (Oct. 30) it’s the 1925 Lon Chaney-starring version of “The Phantom Of the Opera” performed with a live score on the stunning Skinner pipe organ by Steven Ball, one of the best theater organists around. Details

November 11, is the 1925 stop-motion creature feature “The Lost World” with a live soundtrack performed by Dengue Fever, an LA-based band with psychedelic grooves and a Cambodian-pop sound.

They’ve only put on this show once before in San Francisco, last year, so it’s a pretty special event for UCLA Live. Details
