Te Uru presents a special Halloween screening of F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu (1922), celebrating the 100th anniversary of the horror classic with a live re-score by Auckland-based musician, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Darryn Harkness.
Harkness has been performing alongside the film since 2006 in venues throughout the UK, Germany and New Zealand, including sell-out performances at The Edinburgh Festival and Auckland Arts Festival.
In this 95-minute session, he will recreate sonically the spine-tingling, high-gothic vision of the film—an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula—that cemented the figure of the vampire within cinematic history and the cultural imagination.
Dress-ups are encouraged and beverages will be available to purchase from the Lopdell Theatre bar.
Monday 31 October, doors open at 7:30pm
