Procession of the Ghouls, Following a screening of

Phantom of the Opera (1925) at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine

The Great Organ will be played by Timothy Brumfield to accompany this year’s screening of the original Phantom of the Opera (1925) and the procession of Ralph Lee and the Mettawee River Theater Company’s ghosts and ghouls, Halloween at the Cathedral will be infused with new energy. The full stretch of the nave is at the disposal of Mr. Lee’s fantastic creatures of the night, and visitors are encouraged to brace themselves for increased ghostly mischief and ghoulish tricks. Seats closest to the action are for the bravest at heart, who may find themselves directly confronted with the hooked, expressive nose of a demon, the mossy nails of a witch, or the bulging, flushed cheeks of a ghostly manchild.

Friday, October 28, 7 pm and 10 pm
