Dracula Coming Soon, October 2!

In 1931, as Tod Browning was shooting Dracula with Bela Lugosi, George Melford was working from the same script on the same sets at night with a Spanish language cast and crew. Long thought lost, the film was re-found in the 1970s, showing how wildly different the films are. Many now argue Melford’s film is the better version.

Join us for a showing of this classic monster movie at Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Memorial Cemetery on October 2, 2013 at 7 p.m. Arrive early to enjoy a trailer reel from 1931 and roam throughout the cemetery. Bring a blanket or lawn chair to sit on. If your Spanish is a little rusty, that’s not a problem—the film has English subtitles. $5 Suggested Donation. Tickets are available on-line at or you can pay at the gate (cash only, please). Children under 12 admitted free. Please no pets, alcoholic beverages or videotaping. Take-Up Productions, along with All Star Video Productions, is generously offering this event as a benefit for the Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery’s fence fund. Hope to see you there.
