Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment are thrilled to present a double-feature event of the classic 1931 vampire film Dracula to cinemas nationwide for a two-day event on Sunday, October 25 and Wednesday, October 28 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time. Along with the iconic Bela Lugosi version, horror fans will have the opportunity to see the Spanish language version shot at night with a different cast.
After a harrowing ride through the Carpathian Mountains in eastern Europe, Renfield enters castle Dracula to finalize the transferal of Carfax Abbey in London to Count Dracula, who is in actuality a vampire. Renfield is drugged by the eerily hypnotic count, and turned into one of his thralls, protecting him during his sea voyage to London. After sucking the blood and turning the young Lucy Weston into a vampire, Dracula turns his attention to her friend Mina Seward, daughter of Dr. Seward who then calls in a specialist, Dr. Van Helsing, to diagnose the sudden deterioration of Mina’s health. Van Helsing, realizing that Dracula is indeed a vampire, tries to prepare Mina’s fiancé, John Harker, and Dr. Seward for what is to come and the measures that will have to be taken to prevent Mina from becoming one of the undead.
This film will be shown in the same aspect ratio as when it was originally released in cinemas.
