Nosferatu Halloween Special Screening
Sundown, October 29th…(that’s 5:56pm if you want to be specific about when it’s safe to open your coffin).
Celebrate Halloween weekend with a special screening of “Nosferatu,” the original vampire movie partially based on Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula,” during its 100th anniversary year.
Come early for our Halloween shenanigans co-imagined with BBQ Films, our programming partner from “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” (Yes! There will be a costume parade across the stage!)
“Nosferatu” is considered one of the pinnacles of German Expressionist filmmaking. It famously ran afoul of Bram Stoker’s estate which won a settlement against the producers for borrowing too freely from the classic novel.
The movie stars Max Schreck, Alexander Granach, Gustav von Wangenheim, and Greta Schröder. It is directed by F.W. Murnau and written by Henrik Galeen.
The silent movie will be accompanied by live organ as part of our “Restoring the Wonder” campaign to raise $35,000 to continue work on our historic Robert Morton theatre organ, one of America’s few remaining original theatre organs.
All proceeds will go toward the campaign to begin returning restored pipes to the organ chamber with the New York Theatre Organ Society.
