Nosferatu Shadow

Film Night: Nosferatu (1922)

Film night | 25 January, 2019, 7:00 PM

One of the most eerie, foreboding and influential horror films in the history of cinema, Nosferatu wasn't quite the first vampire film, but it was the first adaptation of Dracula (albiet an unofficial one) and established the conventions of succeeding vampire pictures: the thirst for blood, the power of sunlight to destroy the creature and vampirism as a metaphor for sexuality, contagion and xenophobia.

After Hours Victorian Surgery Demonstration

Special Event | 31 January, 2019, 7:00 PM

​This is a unique after hours event that will take you back in time to witness a mock Victorian surgical demonstration presented within the original architecture of the old operating theatre of St. Thomas’s Hospital dated to 1822. Before the advent of anaesthesia, an operation had to be swift. Without hand-washing or antiseptics, the chance of later infection was high.
