Get your tickets now for our June 7th presentation of the silent classic NOSFERATU featuring a live accompaniment by the Austin band Invincible Czars!
Considered the most important vampire picture of the silent era, NOSFERATU tells the story of a young man from the peaceful village of Wisborg sent to sell a piece of property to the mysterious Count Orlok.
Orlok possess people in the the village from afar and brings a swarm a plague infested rats to the town and the hero races back to town before it’s too late. The Invincible Czars’ soundtrack features Leila Henley’s spooky voice and was her debut on bass clarinet. It also more triggers and loops than ever before and incoprorates several Romanian folk dances (made popular by Bela Bartok) into the score.
The Invincible Czars make hard to categorize music for lovers of everything in the “other” category. They’ve evolved from a rag-tag art-rock group on Austin’s Red River scene to a reverse classical-crossover powerhouse playing clubs, theaters and universities all over the US. Their unique instrumentation, ambitious projects and variety of styles & influences attracts fans of Frank Zappa, Mr. Bungle, NoMeansNo, Brave Combo, Alloy Orchestra, Danny Elfman, Ween & Sonic Youth. Musicianship, humor and experimentation abound. They also have a pretty sweet wardrobe collection.
Don’t miss this silent classic on our big screen on June 7th at 7:30pm!
