A Not-So-Silent Silent Film

In partnership with the Video Association of Dallas, the Dallas Chamber Symphony is set to perform a newly minted musical score (courtesy film composer Douglas Pipes) to Hitchcock’s silent film The Lodger. This will be a live-to-film event, with the DCS synchronizing Pipes’ new composition to the actions on screen. The DCS has become known for these highly entertaining film concerts, having already commissioned and performed six others in the past two years. Word is, they don’t disappoint. Also serving as the opening night of VideoFest 27, the performance will provide a unique opportunity to support both Dallas’ classical and film cultures in one fell swoop. With a recently restored version of The Lodger and an award-winning film composer in play, this is one movie night you don’t want to miss. The screening takes place on Wednesday, October 8; tickets are $19 to $59. More information at Dallaschambersymphony.org
