About the Event
Join us as we take a private tour of The Colonial Theatre! We'll learn about The Colonial's long history including the special place it holds in cinematic history thanks to a starring role in the classic film, “The Blob.”
After the tour, we’ll enjoy a 100th anniversary screening of F.W. Murnau’s haunting tale ‘Nosferatu’ with a once-in-a-lifetime performance by The Theatre Organ Society of Delaware. Organist Brett Miller will perform music pieces based on Hans Erdmann’s original 1922 score. The original score has since been lost (destroyed), however, parts of it can be found in old 1920s German music books. This is not only your chance to celebrate the 100th anniversary but experience it as if you were living in 1922.
Then we'll enjoy dinner at Vecchia Nuova following the film!

About the Film
In this highly influential silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok’s servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.
