2:00 PM 
Linwood Dunn Theater
1313 Vine Street
Hollywood, CA 90028

Soon after sound took hold in the movie industry, Hollywood studios experimented with ways to attract Spanish-speaking audiences. Using Latin-American actors, technicians and directors, they shot Spanish-language versions of their films on the same sets. Notable among these alternate versions is this stylish adaptation of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel. Directed by George Melford, Drácula was filmed at night during the production of the 1931 English-language version that starred Bela Lugosi.

Monday October 30th, 7:30 PM 
Samuel Goldwyn Theater
8949 Wilshire Boulevard
Beverly Hills, CA, 90211

Halloween Screening: Dawn of the Dead

Pioneering director and horror icon George Romero unleashed onto unsuspecting viewers the modern film zombie—a specter that remains a shockingly adaptable metaphor for contemporary life. In honor of the late master of the undead, we screen one of his classics, Dawn of the Dead. Like Night of the Living Dead before it, Dawn helped shape the zombie genre and tapped into the zeitgeist of its historical moment with a deft combination of blood, tension, and social satire.

"For our 18th Annual Dia de los Muertos, we tip our feather and flower adorned hat to the Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada. Over 100 years ago, Posada gave us many of the foundational images of Dia de los Muertos that are still venerated today and which have become treasured images of Mexican culture and identity. J.G. Posada reminds us that art is power – political and social speech – mass produced by the printing presses and now social media. Posada’s La Catrina asks us to embrace the beauty and grace inherent in facing our own death and the inevitable loss of those we love. By facing loss with love, and art, we find transcendence."
