Haxan

7:30pm pre-screening celebration - 8:30pm screening

As Winter draws near, we’re celebrating the burgeoning darkness with an evening of spine-chilling entertainment and fiery festivities! Loemis and AroVideo are proud to present this once-in-a-lifetime screening of HAXAN - Benjamin Christensen's 1922 Scandinavian silent horror masterpiece, complete with live narration and a brand new score written and performed on the night by a host of talented musicians. Arrive at 7:30pm dressed to impress – whether you’re a wildling, witch, werewolf, angel or demon! – for some pre-screening fun in the Grand Lobby.

Häxan is a film possessed with a bold, progressive agenda that shattered any pre-conceived notions I had that conflate silent black-and-white images with respectability and naivety. It’s visceral depiction of humanity bedevilled by fear, ignorance, intolerance and injustice make it a film as much for these times as it was when it was made nearly 100 years ago. Still an absolute treat for contemporary audiences, its Gothic visual tableaux is so intoxicating and its polemic so rational, it really needs no updating. It also frequently taps a vein of heretical satire. Presented here in a shorter version that is ideally suited to a live cinema event, this will be a communal experience not to be missed". Andrew Armitage, AroVideo
