Spread the joy (and terror) with filmmaker Tim Burton’s macabre mashup of Halloween and Christmas, a movie favorite since 1993. This spooky spectacular returns, with the Minnesota Orchestra playing Danny Elfman’s frightfully original score live, while the scary story plays on the big screen. Scare up some friends and come to Orchestra Hall!
