Nosferatu (1922) – Saturday November 26th 7:00 PM
Hollywood Theatre – 4122 NE Sandy Blvd., Portland, OR 97212
Dean Lemire will be performing his original score on the mighty Hollywood Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ to celebrate NOSFERATU’S 100th Anniversary.
This was the first vampire film…and still reigns today as the granddaddy of all horror films. Starring Max Schreck as Count Orlok, a vampire who preys on the wife of his estate agent and brings the plague to their town. Director F. W. Murnau was a huge influence for Alfred Hitchcock…this film proved especially influential for PSYCHO.
Feel free to wear your best Goth outfit….we will be having a costume contest right before the show starts!
“It’s not just a great horror movie. It’s a poem of horror, a symphony of dread, a film so rapt, mysterious and weirdly lovely it haunts the mind long after it’s over…” — Michael Wilmington – Chicago Tribune
“It doesn’t scare us, but it haunts us. It shows not that vampires can jump out of shadows, but that evil can grow there, nourished on death.” — Roger Ebert – Chicago Sun-Times
