Description

Doors will open at 6:30 PM for a 7:00 PM start.

"The only film worth watching....twice" Alfred Hitchcock.

Imagine sitting in an ordinary room and been suddenly told there is a corpse behind the door. Instantly the room is completely altered. Everything in it has taken on another look because you have changed and the objects contained within are as we conceive them.

One of the first psychological horror features, bridging the era of silent and sound films, a young wanderer arrives at a village which is under the curse of a vampire and is taken on an illusory voyage through light and darkness (roiling fogs, forbidding scythes and grim echoes) to a point where he can imagine his own burial.

Director Carl Theodor Dreyer's experimental approach plunges the viewer into a torment where it's uncertain where the nightmare ends and reality begins; exemplifying the idea of dreaming with our eyes open and that fear is not to be found in the things around us but in our own subconscious.

The film will be preceded by an introduction by Gareth Miles. A donations cash bar will available before the screening.

Tickets: £12.00.

*Access is through a 52-step spiral staircase. For more information on access and our space, please, visit our website at http://www.oldoperatingtheatre.com/visiting-us.
