The Desert Classic Film Society Presents the silent classic NOSFERATU

On Friday, February 10  , at 7 pm., the Desert Classic Film Society will present a special presentation of F.W. Murnau’s silent masterpiece, NOSFERATU – A SYMPHONY OF HORROR with live musical accompaniment.

This 1922 German film was the original film version of Dracula, with Max Schreck’s performance considered by many to be the greatest Dracula ever.

Live musical accompaniment will be provided by the PHOTOPLAY ENSEMBLE.  This specialized musical group specializes in authentic live music and live sound effects for silent movie presentations.

The sound effects will be provided by Henry Lozano, the “Mad Doctor of Sound Effects”.  The sound effects will be created with mechanical devices-the same way they were created in the silent film era.

Before the show and during intermission, hand-tinted glass slides from the silent era will be projected.

National Public Radio Film Critic Randy Fischer will provide a mini-lecture on the movie.   A vintage film print will be screened.

NOSFERATU will be presented one-night-only on Friday, February 10 , at 7 pm  at The Bijou Cinema.  The Bijou Cinema is located at 57482 Onaga Trail in Yucca Valley.  Admission is $10 per person.
