The Invincible Czars—an adventurous band all the way from Austin, Texas—is touring select cities on the West Coast with its new, tastefully modern score for the 1922 German silent film Nosferatu, directed by the legendary F.W. Murnau. The band is stopping at the Kiggins Theatre in downtown Vancouver on its way to the Seattle International Film Festival—and you can catch the live performance at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 7.
Nosferatu is one of the most revered films in the history of cinema. It is considered the most important horror film of the silent era and one of the first vampire movies—although it was almost completely lost when the estate of Bram Stoker sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed.
Fans, theaters and media have praised The Invincible Czars for making the nearly century-old movie “actually scary” for modern-day audiences. The score and their performance of it complements the onscreen tone and emotion from moment to moment. For more information on the band, visit invincibleczars.com.
The Kiggins Theatre is located at 1011 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. All seats for this show are $12. Advance tickets are available here: http://tinyurl.com/y8n3r22u.
