On 26th October 2017, LSO St Luke’s, the Grade I listed events space on London’s Old Street, played host to The Nomad Cinema’s screening of the 1922 classic horror film, Nosferatu.
To celebrate Halloween, Old Street Partnership - an alliance of key local businesses which have come together with the aim of promoting the Old Street area - teamed up with the magnificent home of the London Symphony Orchestra’s music education centre, to bring guests a chilling performance of F.W Murnau’s original Dracula film, Nosferatu, complete with live score from musical sensations ‘The Cabinet of Living Cinema’. Performed above LSO St Luke’s crypt, once home to over 1,000 burials, guests experienced a truly unique screening fit for this masterpiece.
Christopher Cashman, Sales & Events Manager at LSO St Luke’s commented, “Our stunning interior provides a natural home for visually immersive events. The imposing architecture and pin-drop acoustics, along with atmospheric lighting made for the perfect backdrop to this Halloween spectacular. We are proud to partner with the Old Street Partnership and look forward to continuing our contribution to the success of this dynamic and vibrant area.”
Matthew Moffatt, Chairman at Old Street Partnership added, “The Partnership were delighted to be sponsoring the screening of such a cult classic Nosferatu at such an iconic landmark as LSO St Luke’s. This is a great example of local businesses working together with the arts to boost cultural activity locally and promote the local area of Old Street”
