Critic’s pick: Spanish ‘Dracula’ to screen with live music

Share via

Every film fan has seen Tod Browning’s classic 1931 vampire opera “Dracula,” starring Bela Lugosi as the dread count, but not everyone knows that when the English-speaking cast went home for the night, Spanish-speaking actors took over the set and made a version in that language for export to Latin America. It’s at least the equal of the Browning version, some say even spookier, and those who check it out on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at Cinefamily (611 N. Fairfax Ave.) will be in for another great treat. Virtuoso guitarist Gary Lucas will provide a spectacular solo guitar accompaniment that is not to be missed.
