Over-the-Rhine's notably haunted Music Hall will get an extra dose of spooky spirit this weekend, when the Cincinnati Pops screens Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The orchestra, conducted by Christopher Dragon, will perform Danny Elfman's cinematic score live with the film. So as Jack Skellington proclaims "This is Halloween," the Pops' woodwinds, brass and strings will play along for a robust and immersive viewing — and listening — experience.

Screenings take place 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23 and 2 p.m. Oct. 24. 

Tickets start at $25. Online youth tickets are available for 50% off.

Music Hall is located at 1241 Elm St., Over-the-Rhine. More info at
