Alamo Drafthouse in Lubbock to Show ‘Nosferatu’ With Live Score by The Invincible Czars
Thursday, May 2nd, Lubbock's Alamo Drafthouse (120 W. Loop 289) will host a screening of the silent film masterpiece Nosferatu, with a live score performed by the Invincible Czars.
The screening will take place at 7:30 p.m. From Alamo Drafthouse:
NOSFERATU is one of the most revered films in the history of cinema. As the world's first vampire movie, it is regarded as the first important horror film--but it was almost erased from the history books when the estate of Bram Stoker sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed. Several survived, and this performance will feature the most completely restored version that exists.
The Invincible Czars' Nosferatu score incorporates violin, glockenspiel, organ, flute, bass clarinet, vocals, music box, loops, electric guitar, bass, singing bowl, tambourine and other hand percussion--all of which is a sight to behold when performed live by only four players!
The band always incorporates music from the classical realm into their scores, and this time they've chosen Bela Bartok's Roumanian Folk Dances in a nod to the fictional Count Orlock's home turf. The highlight of their arrangements is a haunting version of Roumanian Dance IV featuring an otherworldly vocal performance by the band's wind mistress Leila Henley.
