FoUND: Festival of the (Un)Dead at The Arts Centre

25 October 2019 - Great Hall

For the second year running, Ōtautahi Christchurch’s city centre will come alive with the undead in a festival that celebrates everything that is cool and quirky about Halloween.

There will be a cauldron of ghoulish delights with live music, dance, theatre, films, games and crafts in a host of spine-curdling community and ticketed events across the city, including at The Art Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora.

Events at The Arts Centre:

Pull on your fishnets and join us in The Transylvanian – the Great Hall’s very own cult-classic cinema cabaret club for one eyebrow-raising night only!

Nosferatu – A Symphony of Horror with live piano accompaniment by Chris Archer
One of the greatest horror films of all time, F. W. Murnau’s silent 1922 vampire classic Nosferatu will be ceremoniously resurrected within the Gothic Revival architecture of the Great Hall at The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora, brought eerily to life with live piano accompaniment by Chris Archer.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show singalong
Pull on your fishnets and join us in The Transylvanian – the Great Hall’s very own Cult-Classic Film Cabaret Club for one eyebrow-raising night only. So you unconventional conventionists, you are to witness the return of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, back by popular demand to FoUND: Festival of the (Un)Dead, and returning to its regular haunt at The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora after 25 years.
