Presented by Coastal Awakening, Vitalant, SLO Film Fest and SLO Brew
The SLO Film Fest is proud to partner with Coastal Awakening once again for this exciting Halloween-themed movie event.
The original 1931 movie will screen at SLO Brew’s Rock and includes a costume contest for vampire-wanna be’s!
This is the first in a series of films scored by the incredible composer Philip Glass, with more to come during the 2020 SLO Film Fest. Over the past two years, we have collaborated to present thought-provoking and eclectic cinema sponsored by Coastal Awakening.
The Coastal Awakening honors and preserves the spirit of contemplation and creative alchemy indigenous to California’s central coast by advocating for cultural activities that celebrate human potential initiatives in and beyond San Luis Obispo County.

The original 1931 DRACULA stars Bela Lugosi, Helen Chandler and David Manners. This is not a silent film, however it’s interesting to note that there was no real musical soundtrack in the film when it was released. It was believed that, with sound being such a recent innovation in films, the audience would not accept hearing music in a scene if there was no explanation for it being there!
You’ll get to experience the 1999 Philip Glass soundtrack, recorded by the Kronos Quartet, in this beautifully restored high definition version played on the state-of-the-art projection and sound system at The Rock.
