Usher Hall presents….A Halloween Special!

Each year at Halloween, Edinburgh’s unique concert hall organises an evening dedicated to chilling you to the bone!

This year, there will be a screening of the original 1923 silent film, The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo.  This is a hideous story of betrayal, murder and intrigue and audiences will return to the 1920’s as the famous Usher Hall organ imitates the experience of movie theatres back in the day. 

Set in 15th century Paris, the story involves a hunch-backed bell-ringer, a gypsy queen and a plot to stir-up a peasant revolt for personal gain.  Sit on the edge of your seat as the tension mounts. 

Spooktacular entertainment has been arranged in the café/bar before and after the film. 

The audience is encouraged to dress as characters from the film, gypsy style, 1920’s garb or as scary as you like! 

Councillor Richard Lewis, Convener of Culture and Sport is looking forward to the event. He said: “The annual Halloween 'spookfest' is rightly considered a family highlight of the Usher Hall's programme.  Cinema lovers who enjoy a spooky night out are in for an unforgettable evening”.

Tickets are now on sale and cost £12 each - concessions are available.

Thursday 31 October, 7.30pm.

To book, visit or call the box office on 0131 228 1155.
