CRITIC’S PICK: Just in time for Halloween, the classic movie starring Boris Karloff is being presented in high definition on a giant screen, accompanied by singers and full orchestra plus a new score by composer and conductor Michael Shapiro. Featured vocalists will be Amanda Sheriff (soprano), Aubrey Odle (mezzo-soprano), Kameron Lopreore (tenor), Jason Zacher (bass-baritone), as well as veteran bass-baritone Andrew Gilstrap. Organizers are saying “a fantastical collision of sight and sound awaits in this imaginative presentation of vintage cinema.” The 1931 black-and-white film, which lacked a proper soundtrack, made Karloff a star and saved Universal Pictures from bankruptcy during the Depression. Punters are urged to come in costume, and a contest will determine the best and worst-dressed attendees. A post-performance party will “rock the house” with a DJ, dancing and cash bar in two lobby levels of the venue. - Kevin C. Madigan
