The love of it versus The Magic Lantern Film Club

The love of it versus The Magic Lantern Film Club

Our good friends Kerry and Joey run an awesome little thing called The Magic Lantern Film Club, showing secret films in quirky and unusual venues around Bristol. Their latest venture was a screening of Nosferatu in St Mary Redcliffe Church, with Minima providing a live soundtrack to the film.  Naturally, the rest of team loveofit went down to check it out…

St Mary Redcliffe was the perfect location, with the gothic Church providing a wonderfully atmospheric backdrop to the film. Nearly two hundred people came along and gathered in the pews for the evening. Tea and cake provided the perfect accompaniment…

Nosferatu was shot in 1922, loosely based on the story of Dracula. It tells the story of a German estate agent who is dispatched to sell a property to a mysterious count who lives in a Transylvanian castle. Upon reaching there, he notices something is strange about the count, and must battle to save his innocent wife from a terrible fate.

The silent film was really brought to life by the live musical accompaniment of Minima. With just four members, they created an amazing amount of atmosphere and created an unforgettable experience. If you get a chance to catch one of their shows, I really recommend it. Details of their upcoming shows can be found here.
