Halloween extravaganza

St. John the Divine Halloween Extravaganza

Every year at the Cathedral St. John the Divine on the UWS, Halloween is celebrated with an hour and a half of entertainment: a silent movie – this year “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”, followed by the Grand Procession of Ghouls. The Cathedral’s Grand Organ provides the live soundtrack for both the movie and the Procession of Ghouls, contributing to the eerie Halloween atmosphere created within the Church.

Entering the Church, the guy in the short movie above is welcoming the visitors. Come an hour or so early and sit as close as possible to the movie screen and preferably take aisle seats.

The Grand Procession of Ghouls is a very impressive parade of characters wearing fantastic costumes, entering through smoke and walking the main aisle while interacting with the visitors. At the end, some mingling makes possible picture taking with your favorite ghoul(s), just don’t expect them to talk: they’re very quiet at all times.
Tickets are available to purchase in advance through the Cathedral’s website.

I hope the pictures show at least a bit of the fun we had.


About Micky

This is (mostly) about the city. Places, happenings, possibly the occasional meal, or simply pictures of a moment in time. I'm doing my best to remain an eternal tourist in the city that adopted me quite a while ago, and that I love even when it gets to me. It's about life in New York City. For a while, some of the posts will be about past events/happenings, moments that I enjoyed and that I want to have here as a reminder. View all posts by Micky
