Spectacular Screening of Nosferatu Scheduled for October 5 in Montreal
To celebrate the centennial of Bram Stoker's death, Le Cinéclub: The Film Society of Montreal has an amazing screening of F.W. Murnau's classic film Nosferatu scheduled for this Friday, October 5. And that's just the beginning. Read on for the details.
Doors to the venue open at 7:30 p.m. and the film begins at 8 p.m. And did we mention the venue happens to be an old gothic-style church (pictured below). In addition to Nosferatu, attendees will also be treated to a bonus film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Both movies will have live musical accompaniment. The music for Nosferatu will be performed by members of the band Sweet Mother Logic.
From the Press Release
On October 5, Le Cinéclub: The Film Society (C/FS), is presenting a spectacular screening-concert of Nosferatu (1922) in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the (un)death of Bram Stoker, creator of Dracula. C/FS has brought in two musicians from Montreal band Sweet Mother Logic to accompany the great silent German horror film on piano, cello and church organ in a magnificent gothic church.
It will be preceded by a screening with live music of another silent horror classic, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) followed by an intermission (with snacks and drinks available). Both films are being projected onto a giant screen through the magic of genuine motion picture film (not digital.) The event is open to all, but small children might find the experience too disturbing. (Ages 10 and up recommended).
Tickets are $12 or $8 for seniors and students, available at the door only. Doors open at 7:30pm, the projector rolls at 8pm. The venue can be found at 4695 deMaisonneuve West, a few blocks east of Metro Vendôme.
