Nitehawk Cinema Features Live Scores to Accompany Classic Movies

A screeching violin can warn us that our favorite actress is in danger; a tapping drum can mimic the hoof beats of a trotting horse, and a sliding horn can tell us when to laugh when Buster Keaton braves death again. On Sunday, May 13, the Nitehawk cinema carried on a musical tradition, screening the F. W. Murnau’s 1927 film “Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans,” and featured Morricone Youth live, accompanying film.
