Join us for a limited engagement live performance from the Athens, OH, orchestral folk rock collective The Ridges. Performing their original folk-inspired and string-based score to a projection of the 1922 silent classic, Nosferatu, The Ridges bring new life to the German Expressionist adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula that set the standard for horror movies. The horror continues with ghost tours of the Art Museum and special exhibition Realm of the Immortals: Daoist Art in the Cincinnati Art Museum.
The Ridges perform 6 – 8 p.m.
Ghost tours at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.
