A Special Event! An Evening with Willem Dafoe

Shadow of the Vampire

Luxembourg, United Kingdom, United States | 2000 | E. Elias Merhige

Shadow of the Vampire

UK/USA/Luxembourg, 2000,Tonight we welcome actor Willem Dafoe, who will appear in person to answer questions after a screening of a little-known film that contains one of his most celebrated performances (and earned him his second Oscar nomination). Shadow of the Vampire is a fictionalized account of the filming of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 German silent horror classic Nosferatu. Dafoe plays Max Schreck, the star of Murnau’s film, who, in this reimagining, takes method acting to new levels—staying in character (and in his ghoulish makeup) throughout the shoot at a spooky Czech castle; terrorizing his co-stars by claiming he’s a real vampire; even eating bats! It’s an unforgettable performance by one of our finest actors, who will talk about his many memorable roles and performances in a wide-ranging Q&A session after the screening.

Total approx. 3 hrs. 35mm.

Special admission $20; Cinematheque members and CIA I.D. holders $15; age 25 & under (at the door only, if seats remain) $12; no passes, twofers, or radio winners. No second film discount. Advance $20 & $15 tickets at http://willemdafoe.brownpapertickets.com/.
