Everyone likes to dress up and go to the theatre from time to time, and we encourage you to go all out and go to the Disney Hall tonight for their annual Halloween Silent Film. Costumes are not uncommon at the Disney Hall for this event, and add to a lively atmosphere. You can get front row (if you're feeling fancy) tickets for only $63 (typically $178) and as low as $38.

This year's film is The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, a 1920's film that helped kick off the German Expressionist movement (and more famously influenced the likes of Hitchcock, Burton, and Herzog). Here's a clip from the silent film, with a soundtrack provided by virtuoso organist Clark Wilson.

If you don't want to dress up and celebrate Halloween (we expect to see a lot of Yuja Wang impersonations), Hillary Hahn is performing a solo recital at the Disney Hall on Tuesday. Expect Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and 13 selections of 27 works she commissioned (a collective work aptly called 27 Pieces: the Hillary Hahn Encores).
