Creepy classic thriller 'Nosferatu' Silent Film with live music!

Celebrate Halloween with pioneer silent horror movie on the big screen with live music—see it if you dare!!!

Max Schreck stars in 'Nosferatu' (1922), the original silent film version of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula,' to be shown with live music by Jeff Rapsis on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Townsend Public Library, 12 Dudley Road, Townsend, Mass. Admission is free to the screening, which is co-sponsored by the Townsend Senior Center.

"The original 'Nosferatu' is a film that seems to get creepier as more time goes by," said Rapsis, a resident of Bedford, N.H. "It's a great way to celebrate Halloween and the power of silent film to transport audiences to strange and unusual places."The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Stoker's novel, with names and other details changed because the studio could not obtain rights to the novel.
Thus "vampire" became "Nosferatu" and "Count Dracula" became "Count Orlok." After the film was released, Stoker's widow filed a copyright infringement lawsuit and won; all known prints and negatives were destroyed under the terms of settlement.However, intact copies of the the film would surface later, allowing 'Nosferatu' to be restored and screened today as audiences originally saw it. The image of actor Max Schreck as the vampire has become so well known that it appeared in a recent 'Sponge Bob Squarepants' espisode.
Silent film accompanist Jeff Rapsis will enhancethis showing by improvising live music on the spot!

How did two fifties-era Iowan housewives, who performed songs by the Andrews Sisters and were married on the same day, become two of the most influential advice columnists of all time? "Ann and Abby", a live 3-person comedy, examines how chutzpah, hard work and a bit of luck propelled the twins into becoming two of the most beloved and respected women of the 20th century.

With humor, snappy one-lines and a whole lot of love, Abby and Ann will dole out advice to the audience on the proper way to hang toilet paper, how to stop your husband from wearing a Tarzan suit and how not to be a lovelorn teen. The twins will also provide insights into how they, as children of immigrant parents, remained the world's most popular advisers for over 50 years. Discussion with the audience will follow the performance.

An edutainment production, the show will feature Lynne Moulton, Fran Baron and Joseph Zamparelli.

Chester A. Arthur by Zachary Karabell

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.
