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.
