Horror Classic Nosferatu
Horrorklassieker én cultfilm ‘Nosferatu’ uit 1922 is een van de eerste films gebaseerd op Bram Stokers vampierepos ‘Dracula’. Om de auteursrechten te omzeilen werd de elegante Dracula een monsterachtige graaf Orlok en werden plot en setting aangepast. Stokers weduwe was echter niet te vermurwen en liet beslag leggen op de film, op één kopie na.... Gegarandeerd een bloedstollende filmavond met livemuziek! ..

A special evening is in store!
