To mark its 100th anniversary, this very special screening of the recently fully restored version of F W Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922), one of the most iconic films of the German expressionist era, let alone cinema itself, will showcase the way this incredible film is meant to be shown: on the big screen with live musical accompaniment.

Featuring some of the most iconic images in cinema history, Murnau’s Nosferatu: Eine Symphonie des Grauens (Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror) continues to haunt and terrify modern audiences with its unshakable power of gothic imagery and blood curdling suspense.

In this first-ever screen adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a simple real-estate transaction leads an intrepid businessman deep into the superstitious heart of Transylvania. There he encounters the otherworldly Count Orlok (portrayed by the legendary Max Schreck, in a performance the very backstory of which has spawned its own mythology) who soon after embarks upon a cross-continental voyage to take up residence in a distant new land… and establish his ambiguous dominion.

With live piano accompaniment by composer, writer and broadcaster Neil Brand and a special introduction and Q&A by author and film historian Sir Christopher Frayling as well as the newly restored version by the Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Foundation, Wiesbaden.
