Not So Silent Cinema presents "Nosferatu"


Join us for a screening of F.W. Murnau's chilling German Expressionist masterpiece, Nosferatu, complete with a live score from Not So Silent Cinema.

As one of the silent film era's most influential films, Nosferatu's dark, brooding mood, masterful cinematography, and ghastly vampire ghoul, continue to frighten audiences today and set the standard for all horror films that followed it. 

In tandem with our new exhibition, Spit Spreads Death, the film will be paired with a brief introductory lecture on the use of horror as a metaphor for pestilence. 

Mütter Museum admission is included in the ticket price and the museum will be open from 5:30-6:30, as well as a cash bar and complimentary pretzels upstairs. The lecture and film screening will begin promptly at 6:40 and no one will be admitted past that point. Costumes are highly encouraged!

5:30PM-6:30PM Reception/Museum Open
6:40PM-9:15PM Program (Lecture and Screening)
