Nosferatu with Saskatoon symphony orchestra

Restored Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon
William and I met up  with Mike this afternoon in Saskatoon at the matinee performance of Murnau's 1922 Nosferatu (the first, albeit copyright-infringing, film version of Dracula) with live accompaniment by the Saskatoon symphony at my favorite theatre, the Roxy on 20th Street in Saskatoon. We drove up first thing in the morning, getting there just early enough to pop into Lee Valley Tools and buy some retro German safety goggles which are very diesel-punk, then take in the film, and drive back to Regina in time for my mom's church supper (figured being late for her church thing because we were at a vampire movie would put us in the doghouse for the foreseeable future). All went well and we had a great time.
