Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
October 31, 2019
Get into the spirit of Halloween with a screening of the silent horror classic starring the great John Barrymore and featuring a live score performed by virtuoso organist, Dorothy Papadakos.
The sacred space of Grace Cathedral will transform into a grand movie palace for a special screening of John S. Robertson’s 1920 adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson novella of a doctor wrestling with split identities.
Currently a member of the GRAMMY-winning Paul Winter Consort and former Cathedral Organist of New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Dorothy Papadakos has accompanied the greatest silent films in venues around the world.
This performance will take full advantage of the cathedral’s 7,466 pipe Aeolian-Skinner organ, an historic instrument installed in 1934 that has been played by many of the world’s great organists and earned a place in jazz history as well, being employed for the premiere of Duke Ellington’s Concert of Sacred Music and pianist Vince Guaraldi’s Jazz Mass, both in 1965.
Also Nosferatu at 10 pm.
