The Flicker Club Presents Hammer: February 2012

On Saturday February 18th at 3pm, as part of the the Vault Festival at the Old Vic Tunnels, Janina read from Bram Stoker's Dracula to introduce a screening of the Hammer Dracula (1958) in which she played Tania.

From the Vault Festival site:

the flicker club presents Hammer: classics and cutting edge.

… something wicked this way comes…

We are thrilled and slightly scared to announce that the flicker club has formed an unholy alliance with the mighty Hammer, Britain's legendary house of horror.

And where is this marvellous madness taking place?

At VAULT, in the dark dank depths of The Old Vic Tunnels … where else …

… are you sitting uncomfortably…? Then we'll begin…
