Celebrate “Shocktober” at The Picture House Regional Film Center with Friday Night Frights film series featuring a different chilling, horror movie each week and the annual Halloween screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
A highlight of the month will take place on Friday, October 14th at 9:00 p.m. when The Picture House will have special screening of 1922 classic horror silent film, Nosferatu accompanied by a live score performed by The Invincible Czars. For over a decade, Austin music ensemble The Invincible Czars have been crafting original silent film scores that combine rock and orchestral music. The group’s special live performance at The Picture House – which is perfect for teens — accompanying F.W. Murnau’s 1922 vampire classic Nosferatu, is an original score that blends their unique sound with vocals, sampling, and elements of Bela Bartok’s Six Romanian Folk Dances.
