When #CountOrlok tells you to see his movie, you kind of uh...have to see it.

Thanks to all who came out to #Nosferatu last night, with creepy organ accompaniment by Andrew Simpson and lurking by the Count himself.

How often do you go to an amazing movie, get to hear from the lead actor of the film, then have him grab you to dance in the lobby, while a DJ plays? Only at the #AFILatinFilm Festival.
Thanks to actor @jeanjeanx of @josemariacabral's @carpinterosmovie, @djsuelto and @kestahappening for a great Closing Night! #Cine #Cinexperience #DominicanRepublic 🇩🇴

Thank you to the @peruintheusa for hosting the party after tonight's #AFILatinFilm screening of ONE LAST AFTERNOON!

Thanks to @sorsilverspring's House Band for kicking off our last #SilverScreens outdoor movie last night! They are such a talented group. And, watching the School of Rock perform before watching #SchoolOfRock -- you can't really beat that.

We "truly adore" everyone that came out and made Friday's Silver Screens outdoor screening of #PurpleRain a success! Thanks to our sponsor @majicdc, @DJFaceMusic and @thelilbigdaddy for hooking us up with the perfect Prince soundtrack before the film -- it really got us in the mood before the show. By the end of the night the phone lights were up and out during for the movie's "Purple Rain" climax song. #RIPPrince @Prince #Prince #OutdoorMovies @denizensbrewing @tom.hucker

#SilverScreens (our #free outdoor film series) is back on tomorrow night with @LegoBatmanMovie -- rain or shine. @RealLegoBatman arranged for the overhang on Veterans Plaza to keep you dry in case the Joker pulls rain out of his bag of tricks.

We're saddened to learn of the untimely passing of #DCLegend Danny Hogg aka Cool "Disco" Dan. We hosted the sold-out premiere of THE LEGEND OF COOL "DISCO" DAN doc on his life back in '13, but Dan actually visited the theatre last year for the #WallWriters premiere.

We had double the frightening fun yesterday with two #CountGoreDeVol presents screenings! The stakes were high and the competition was fierce during the #Alien egg toss challenge. We have a horror filled summer planned -- up next: #DrSarcofiguy hosting @PoltergeistMovie, + the #EvilDead trilogy, and #NobuhikoObayashi's 1977 classic HOUSE.
And, stay tuned for the next Count Gore Presents announcement! 📸 @bruce_guthrie #CreatureFeature #Tarantula #Hausu #Horror #SciFi #Cinexperience
