A masterpiece of early horror cinema, recently restored, Nosferatu still has the power to send chills down the spine of cinemagoers 96 years after its creation. Now renowned Cork composers Irene and Linda Buckley present the film with a new score, never before performed in Ireland, utilising the majestic organ at Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral, accompanied by viola, cello and electronics. The eerie modern classical score – comprising beautiful recurrent themes together with moments of chilling dark ambience and intense, ominous drone – is so complementary to Murnau’s foreboding imagery that you would think they had always been together.
Score commissioned for the Organ Reframed Festival at Union Chapel, London.

An emigrant comedy tells the tale of an Irish girl, Patricia O’Day, who comes to America to claim a fortune left to her late brother. Marion Davies shines in the lead, impishly masquerading as a boy and cleverly negotiating the world of high finance, inheritance and steam ships while falling in love with her cousin Larry Delevan (Harrison Ford). Directed by Sidney Olcott (O’Kalem films 1910–1915), and produced by newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst, the film was a huge box office success.
