Nosferatu The Vampyre12A
Real estate agent Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania with the aim of negotiating the purchase of a property for the mysterious Count Dracula. Once Jonathan falls under the Count’s malevolent spell, Dracula travels to Jonathan’s hometown, where he encounters the beautiful Lucy and unleashes a deadly plague on the townspeople. Rather than serving as a mere remake, Herzog envisioned his Nosferatu as a cinematic dialogue with FW Murnau’s masterpiece, creating a deeply atmospheric work that bridged the cinema of 1920s Weimar with the German New Wave of the 1970s.
‘Werner Herzog’s venture to Transylvania seems as much inspired by German romantic art (Caspar David Friedrich, especially) as by Bram Stoker or Bela Lugosi.’
Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent
‘Slowed down to a nightmare crawl, it’s one of its director’s most bizarre, resonant and fascinating films.’
Tim Robey, The Telegraph

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
