"Vampyr"

Celebrating a decade of marrying celluloid with live music, the Silent Movie Revival is living proof that cinema will never die. Because no matter how hard you try, you can’t replicate a one-of-a-kind experience. Started in 2006 in a Richmond living room with random vinyl records providing the soundtrack to classic silent films, the sight-and-sound advocacy group presents Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1932 horror film, “Vampyr” on Sunday, Oct. 30. It features live musical accompaniment by a notorious noise rock duo, Navi. The pairing of Dreyer’s washed-out, soft-focus imagery and Navi’s controlled chaos should make for a jarring juxtaposition of sinister, supernatural intentions. Individually, the film and band stand on their own merits. What makes this pairing unique is that it’s the only place on earth it will happen. The one-night-only performance starts promptly at 8. Admission is free with donations strongly encouraged.
