Nosferatu with the Invincible Czars 

When: Sat., Oct. 22, 7:30 p.m. 2016
Price: $10
F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu may be just a rehash of Bram Stoker's Dracula with a bestial monster in place of the suave vampire, but it's a rehash with impeccable style. The silent film is moody and atmospheric, and Max Schreck's legendary performance as the foul Count Orlock is supremely eerie. It's even better with a new soundtrack. The Invincible Czars is an Austin, Texas, band that has composed a modern score for the film that incorporates violin, music box, glockenspiel and several other unusual instruments. Their music also interpolates Bela Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances. The band also encourages the audience to dress in Halloween-appropriate outfits for the screening; it should be an incredible night of sound and vision. It all takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 22, at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue, Webster Groves; Tickets are $10.
