Methodist Central Hall Westminster hosts special screening of 1922 silent classic with live organ accompaniment

If not quite the first then certainly the most groundbreaking vampire movie, FW Murnau's gothic touchstone Nosferatu, Eine Symphonie des Grauens can never been seen too many times. And there's a unique opportunity to get creeped out by its pointy eared, talon-handed, rat-commanding Count Orlock (spectral-skeletal icon Max Schreck) this evening, fangs to the good people of Methodist Central Hall in Westminster.

Renowned as the venue for the inaugural meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, the century-old Great Hall also boasts a venerable Grand Organ with 4731 pipes: the perfect instrument for living German church music legend Otto M Krämer to improvise a soundtrack for the deathless German Expressionist motion picture. This symphony of horror begins at 7.30pm and tickets are a mere £10 (concessions £7). More information about the event can be found here.
