A curiosity of live music and movie mystery

BRAND NEW for 2018: Settle in to an eerie evening performance featuring an original silent film starring Bill Irwin accompanied by live musicians and an in-the-flesh special effects Foley artist. Inspired by Washington Irving’s spooky tale “The Adventure of the Mysterious Picture,” the film was shot on location in the historic buildings of nearby Van Cortlandt Manor. Steeped in dark and moody turn-of-the-19th-century atmosphere, The Unsilent Picture unbends reality in the true spirit of Sleepy Hollow. You can easily combine this experience with Horseman’s Hollow and Irving’s ‘Legend’!

Recommended for ages 10 and up. Contains scenes of drinking alcohol, smoking and snuff tobacco use, implied violence, and mature themes.
