Reconnecting and consoling historic lovers after nearly 1,000 years, the experience has inspired a film (Edith Walks), bookwork and this special live film-music-performance event, incorporating spoken word from Iain Sinclair, with music and soundscapes...

Phantom of the Opera, Live Score by Minima | 7 November | 7.30pm

  Minima and St John on Bethnal Green are pleased to present another great night of film and music. The Phantom of the Opera (Directed by Rupert Julian, USA 1925, 77 mins) Beneath the sewers of the Paris Opera House dwells a masked figure. He is the Phantom, a hideously disfigured composer whose dream is to turn chorus singer Christine into a diva. Lon Chaney, the “Man of a Thousand Faces”, dominates this classic adaptation of the 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux. His ghastly make-up and outrageous performance made this one of the great classics of American silent film. Add to this...

Nosferatu with live score by Minima, 24 May, 9pm

Murnau’s 1922 ‘Nosferatu’ is a true spine-tingler, which has stood the test of time – with Max Schreck’s portrayal of Count Orlok being one of cinema’s great iconic images. Darkly humorous and tender too – this 1922 classic is a story of yearning and the search for fulfillment. Minima’s music is an audacious 21st-Century interpretation of silent and avant-garde film. The ensemble of...
