It's a rare treat anytime movie lovers get a chance to take in a silent film with live musical accompaniment. It's even more special when that music is an original score written and performed by artists operating outside their comfort zones. But that's exactly what you'll get Tuesday, on the eve of Halloween, when local favorites Katie Preston and Ben Morey perform new music set to a screening of the legendary 1922 horror classic, "Nosferatu," directed by F.W. Murnau. As singer-songwriters well-versed in rock and folk, it will be interesting to see what Preston and Morey do with the haunting narrative and 94-minute running time of this influential, masterful vampire flick. "Nosferatu" will be screened before Tim Burton's "Beetlejuice," as part of a double feature.
Katie Preston and Ben Morey will perform their live score for the screening of "Nosferatu" on Tuesday, October 30, 7 p.m. at The Cinema Theater, 957 South Clinton Avenue. $5-$7. 271-1785. cinemarochester.com.
