Nosferatu – Nosferatu, Eine Symphonie Des Grauens
The Goethe-Institut Los Angeles celebrates the Egyptian Theatre’s 90th Anniversary with this classic 1922 film! F.W. Murnau reinvents the story of Dracula as a silent German Expressionist fable and the result is one of the greatest horror films ever made. Max Schreck is astonishingly creepy as the vampire, and Murnau’s frames ooze eerie atmosphere in this hugely influential tale. Live piano accompaniment by Cliff Retallick.

The Creature From The Black Lagoon – Spend Halloween Night with Actress Julie Adams & The Creature from the Black Lagoon – In 3D! 1954, Universal, 79 min, USA, Dir: Jack Arnold
Ichthyologist Dr. David Reed (Richard Carlson) leads a team of scientists on an expedition up the Amazon River to hunt for fossils linking prehistoric land and sea mammals. But the murky waters of the region’s Black Lagoon hide more than old bones; an amphibious gill-man rises from the depths to attack the researchers. Like King Kong, the creature is captured, escapes and sets his sights on a beautiful woman – Dr. Reed’s girlfriend, Kay (Julia Adams). The last of the classic Universal movie monsters, Creature From The Black Lagoon was one of the studio’s first 3-D features, and remains among the most memorable horror films of the 1950s.
