Movies: Fangbanging in the BK.

Brooklyn's own BAMcinématek has come up with a pretty good alternative to roasting outdoors and sweating your way through the dregs of the summer. Their new series, Bela Lugosi's Dead, Vampires Live Forever, gives you a reason to hide in darkened, air-conditioned theaters for the rest of the summer. Highlights include:
  • Live musical accompaniment for Murnau's silent classic, Nosferatu
  • Probably one of the few chances you'll get to see the Hammer lesbo vamp flick The Vampire Lovers on the big screen
  • The Spanish language version of Browning's 1931 vamp cinema milestone Dracula
  • The wry art house vamp flick Nadja followed by a Q&A with the director Michael Almereyda
There's nine flicks on the slate and the whole runs throughout August.

I just can't watch "Nosferatu" without listening to Type O Negative as the soundtrack. Particularly now after Peter Steele's passing. All the same, I've been in Brooklyn in the summer and a movie theatre sounds pretty inviting...
