On Sunday 13th March, Chapeltown Picture House will be hosting a 100th anniversary screening of F.W. Murnau's seminal classic, NOSFERATU.

Released in 1922, Murnau's film provided not only an iconic entry into German expressionist cinema, but also the first depiction of vampires on screen and laid out many of the rules of the genre that are still being followed to this day.

To present the best quality version of the film, the Chapeltown Picture House will be screening Eureka's excellent restoration of the film, with its glorious new score presented in 5.1 surround sound.

The screening will also feature a brief introduction from Dr Sorcha Ni Fhlainn, Senior Lecturer in Film Studies and American Studies, and founding member of the Manchester Centre for Gothic Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Dr. Ni Fhlainn, the author of Postmodern Vampires: Film, Fiction, and Popular Culture, will discuss the film's place in cinematic history.

This will be a tremendous event for horror fans and students of cinema alike and we hope you join us in celebrating this quintessential moment in cinema history.

Tickets are available here.
