Nosferatu showing in Lake Forest Park
MONSTER MOVIE Double Feature: Little Shop of Horrors (1956) and Nosferatu (1920) hosted by University of Washington Bothell Monster Movie Morality Students
Students from the University of Washington Bothell enrolled in the course, Monster Movie Morality, will present their research papers and host a discussion around two classic films, the 1960 version of Little Shop of Horrors and the cult classic, Nosferatu (1922).
This screening is free and open to the public. Join us on Thursday, August 21, 2014 from 7:00-10:30pm at the Lake Forest Park City Hall - Council Chambers, 17425 Ballinger Way NE, Lake Forest Park, WA 98155
These films were selected by the students to curate as the public part of a film festival. The students have written academic papers researching topics related to the films and to the idea of morality. These papers will be presented as part of the presentation and there will be a brief Q/A after each screening.
In the cult classic Little Shop of Horrors, Skid Row florist Seymour Krelborn cares for a strange, carnivorous plant. Faced with the threat of losing his job, Seymour is forced to decide just how far he's willing to go to keep his flesh-eating plant alive. This film is unrated, but has some violent themes that may not be appropriate for all ages. We recommend treating it as a PG rating. It will begin at 7pm.
Nosferatu was roughly adapted from Bram Stoker’s novel, Dracula. As a work of horror, it presents Count Orlok, a character associated heavily with plague and rats. This is the result of an expressionist influence and an attempt to make the character of Dracula reflect externally the evil that defines his internal being. It is unrated, but may not be appropriate for all ages. Again, we recommend treating it as a PG rating. Screening will begin at 8:30pm.
This double feature movie event is co-hosted by the UWB Office of Community-Based Learning and Research and The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council.
