Silent Film Series at The Hollywood Theatre

Nosferatu - 1922
The third event of CRTOS fall horror silent film series
Saturday, November 28, 2015 2:00 PM
Hollywood Theatre, Portland

One of the silent era's most influential masterpieces, Nosferatu's eerie, gothic feel -- and a chilling performance from Max Shrek as the vampire -- set the template for the horror films that followed.

It's not just a great horror movie. It's a poem of horror, a symphony of dread, a film so rapt, mysterious and weirdly lovely it haunts the mind long after it's over.

"Nosferatu," F.W. Murnau's unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," is often called the first vampire movie. It is without question the first surviving vampire movie.

Original score composed and performed by Dean Lemire on the Beverly Ruth Nelson Memorial Organ.

Transportation and Parking at the Hollywood

Take the MAX to the Hollywood station. Two short blocks to walk to the theatre with lots of fine dining in the area as well.

Broadway Medical Offices offer free parking to Hollywood attendees and it is only a block behind the theatre.
