Donald Mackenzie – Silent film with live organ score (film TBC)

Leicester Square Odeonʼs very own organist Donald Mackenzie specialises in the accompaniment of Silent Films. Films 'under his fingers' includes major classics of the silent screen; The Phantom of the Opera, Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde, King of Kings, Carmen, The Black Pirate, Metropolis - as well as many shorts. His now renowned accompaniments make him in demand throughout the UK and internationally.
