A newly-written score by Patrick Doyle will be performed by a chamber ensemble in accompaniment with a showing of the 1927 silent film "It." The film is based on IT by Elinor Glyn, directed by Clarence Badger, and stars Clara Bow, the original “It girl.”

Doyle, whose latest score was for Sir Kenneth Branagh’s feature film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014), won the 2013 Henry Mancini ASCAP Award. He is a classically trained, world-class film composer known for his work scoring films including Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2006), Eragon (2006), Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Brave (2012).

He has scored nine of the Branagh’s films. Doyle has received two Oscar, two Golden Globe and two César nominations, as well as winning the Ivor Novello Award for Best Film Theme for Henry V (1989). He is currently working on Disney’s Cinderella, directed by Branagh.
