(Tod Browning, United States, 1931, 35mm, 75 min)

Special introduction by film critic Robert Horton!

This landmark horror film isn’t just about a legend—it’s a legend in itself, from its chaotic production (you may notice certain plotlines disappear into thin air) to its main man, Bela Lugosi, in the most resounding performance of his career. One of the oldest depictions of Hollywood’s most-often-portrayed character, this Dracula still remains unmatched, the fanatical Renfield never more unnerving, the voice of the vampire never more magnetic. Don’t miss a chance to experience Dracula as the enthralled American public first experienced it…though we won’t censor the screams for you this time.
