Nosferatu - A symphony of Horror

Thu 10th Nov

19.30

A Silent Masterpiece by F.W. Murnau, Nosferatu is the earliest surviving screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula novel and has had a century long and dangerous life of its own.

Shot in 1921 and released in 1922, Stoker's heirs sued over the adaptation and a court ruling ordered that all copies of the film be destroyed. However, a few prints survived and the film came to be regarded as an influential masterpiece of cinema  outlasting many others of the silent era

The film is accompanied by Martyn Niele in the gothic surroundings of the Drawing Room

Tickets £12 Members £10
