Nosferatu: 100th Anniversary Screening with The Invincible Czars A symphony of horror.

September 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

NOSFERATU is one of the most revered films in the history of cinema, and to celebrate its centenary, Austin’s “emperors of eclecticism,” The Invincible Czars, are bringing their updated soundtrack to the Eureka Theater for a live performance to accompany a screening of the film.

 

There is simply no better way to experience this icon of of the silent era than on the big screen, accompanied with a live score!

Tickets are $20 and available at the door. Doors open at 6:00 p.m.

Unleashed upon the world in 1922, German filmmaker F.W. Murnau‘s NOSFERATU is most certainly the most important horror film of the silent era, and one of the first vampire movies. The fact that it exists at all is something of a miracle, as it was almost completely lost when Bram Stoker‘s widow sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement, and most of the prints of the movie were subsequently destroyed.

Since The Invincible Czars debuted their new score in 2015, fans, theaters and media have praised the soundtrack for making the near century-old movie “actually scary” for modern day audiences. In 2021, they updated the soundtrack to include drums and a little bit more of a “rock edge,” while still retaining its signature, delicate creepiness.

A lush mix of acoustic and electric instruments (including violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, voices and vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, piano and percussion) all play prominent roles in the score’s sonic landscape, ensuring a rich and dynamic experience that can only be had in a theatre.

Want to make this extra fun? Dress up as your favorite vampire, victim, or vampire hunter!
