Musical cinema chills at Croyde and Fremington

Joseph Bulmer

Silent horror classic Nosferatu accompanied by spine-tingling live band Minima.

A special brand of atmospheric spookiness is coming to North Devon as the Croyde Deckchair Cinema presents silent horror classic Nosferatu – with a full live band accompaniment.

Croyde Village Hall will return to the days of silent movies on Thursday, October 27 with a Halloween special screening of the 1922 Dracula story.

The show is also playing at Fremington Quay Caf� on Friday, October 28 at 7.30pm.

Instead of the traditional piano, the spine-tingling sound accompaniment will be performed by modern four-piece band Minima.

Their musical style ranges from ambient to quasi-classical to rock, and the band are renowned for their chilling work after a run of midnight performances at the Edinburgh Fringe this year.

Fancy dress is positively encouraged and the event is being presented by Beaford Arts.

The Deckchair Cinema at Croyde Village Hall offers comfy deckchairs, popcorn plus a licensed bar. Doors open 7.30pm, film start at 8.

Tickets and information for both shows are available from
