Events Description

Faust – with an original score by Mahogany Frog!

The first screening in our reprise of The Roxy’s ongoing Silent Classics Series is F.W. Murnau’s “Faust”, with original score by Mahogany Frog!

Murnau’s FAUST is brought to life with an original music score, written and performed by Winnipeg’s Mahogany Frog — an instrumental electronic rock band from Winnipeg. Using an arsenal of keyboards, cacophonous, feedback-ridden guitars, fuzz-bass and walls of electronics, the group creates dynamic, multi-layered songs which explore tone, mood and composition.
*Originally screened in October 2017 with score performed live*
1926 | 85 minutes | Licensed/19+

Must provide photo I.D. (19+, alcoholic beverage on sale at concession)

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde – with original score by The New Jacobin Club

The second screening in our reprise of The Roxy’s ongoing Silent Classics Series is the 1920 silent adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” with original score by The New Jacobin Club!

1920 | 69 minutes | Licensed/19+
Must provide photo I.D. (19+, alcoholic beverage on sale at concession)

Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages (Vinyl Release + Film Screening)

Decades before The Blair Witch Project brought popularity to the documentary-style horror genre, Danish director Benjamin Christensen unleashed his 1922 silent film Häxan -or- Witchcraft Through The Ages. See the film on the big screen, with a new original score by The Garrys (recorded live in 2019 at the fourth installment in the Halloween-season Riversdale Silent Classics Series; note that there will be no live performance this year — just a super spooky film screening!).
Limited edition double vinyl LPs of Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages (Original Score) by The Garrys will be available for purchase at the show.

Enjoy some hot buttery popcorn and a delicious collaborative LOVE POTION BEER , brewed especially for this event, from 9 Mile Legacy Brewing Company!

1922 | Denmark/Sweden | approx. 105 minutes | DIGITAL

Nosferatu – with original score by Shooting Guns

The final screening in our reprise of The Roxy’s ongoing Silent Classics Series will be on HALLOWEEN NIGHT — a screening of F.W. Murnau’s vampire classic “NOSFERATU: A SYMPHONY OF HORRORS” with original score by Shooting Guns!

Hailing from Saskatoon, SK, in the heart of the Canadian prairies, JUNO and Polaris Prize award nominees Shooting Guns are hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum, haunting the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy pulse-riding kraut-rock.

1922 | 94 minutes | Licensed/19+
Must provide photo I.D. (19+, alcoholic beverage on sale at concession)
