“I have crossed oceans of time to find you…”
Yes, it’s happening! We’re kicking off Halloween weekend with a Hallowinona Double Bill featuring two classics starring Winona Ryder – BEETLEJUICE and BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA.
Francis Ford Coppola‘s gorgeously goth, Oscar-winning adaptation of Bram Stoker‘s iconic novel stars Gary Oldman in the title role as a nocturnal immortal who leaves the captive Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) and Transylvania for London in search of Mina Harker — the spitting image of Dracula’s long-dead wife, Elisabeta (Winona Ryder). Obsessed vampire hunter Dr. Van Helsing (Anthony Hopkins) sets out to end the madness. Also starring Richard E. Grant, Cary Elwes, Billy Campbell, Tom Waits, Monica Bellucci.
“Overblown in the best sense of the word, Francis Ford Coppola‘s vision of Bram Stoker’s Dracula rescues the character from decades of campy interpretations — and features some terrific performances to boot.” (Rotten Tomatoes)
“This luscious film restores the creature’s nobility and gives him peace.” (TIME Magazine)
“It is Coppola’s most lavish and, certainly, his most flamboyant film; never before has he allowed himself this kind of mad experimentation.” (Washington Post)
**Costume contest alert! It’s Halloween season, so let your freak flag fly and maybe win some prizes (not to mention glory, fame, and eternal bragging rights!)**
BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA (Francis Ford Coppola, 1992 / 130 mins / PG) Director Francis Ford Coppola’s lush and gorgeously goth daptation of Bram Stoker‘s classic vampire novel stars Gary Oldman as the legendary Dracula, a lonely soul determined to reunite with his lost love, Mina (Winona Ryder). In Britain, Dracula begins a reign of terror and seduction draining the life from her closest friend, Lucy (Sadie Frost). Together they try and drive Dracula away.
