Nosferatu – with live accompaniment by The Rats and People Motion Picture Orchestra
$10 for members (Aficionado tier and above), $12 for everyone else.
As part of our Shocktober series, we will be showing F.W. Murnau’s silent horror masterpiece, NOSFERATU.
And, if the iconically creepy Count Orlock wasn’t enough to draw you in, we will have the added pleasure of being awash with the sounds of the St. Louis-based ensemble, The RATS AND PEOPLE MOTION PICTURE ORCHESTRA, who will be performing their original score to accompany the film.
The mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok’s servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.
