Oct. 26: Nosferatu
Halloween isn’t until next week, but if you’re already feeling the spooky spirit, Arlington’s Artisphere has you covered. Tomorrow night you can head to the venue at 8 for a screening of the classic silent film Nosferatu. The movie transports viewers to the mountains of Transylvania and into the realm of Count Orlok, the world’s first cinematic vampire. The screening will be accompanied by Not So Silent Cinema’s Klezmer quintet, which will play a hauntingly appropriate original score by composer Brendan Cooney.

Oct. 26: Magpie
The folk duo Magpie celebrates its 40th anniversary tomorrow night at 7:30 with a concert at The Barns at Wolf Trap in Vienna. In their four-decades-long career together, Terry Leonino and Greg Artzner have sung about everything from romance to social and environmental justice. They’ve recorded a dozen albums, the latest is called Of Changes and Dreams and will be released as part of tomorrow’s festivities.

Music: “When the Dream Comes” by Philip Glass
