The ultimate 4D movie experience

A cinematic breath of fresh air, a theatrical reimagining, Live Live Cinema, created and composed by Leon Radojkovic and directed by Oliver Driver, is a heady fusion of theatre, film, music and live performance.

Taking its cue from those old silent movies that had live music played from a dusty organ, Live Live Cinema takes things to a whole new level, adding not only a new sound track played by a live band but also throwing in some actors and a Foley artist to recreate all the audio including dialogue for the film live on stage during the screening.

Live Live Cinema comes to a theatre near you this October with two movies given the Live Live Cinema treatment. The world premiere of a little seen black and white thriller by Francis Ford Coppola Dementia 13 and the highly anticipated return of the acclaimed 1960s horror Carnival of Souls.

Seven musicians, four actors and one brave Foley artist bring the film to life with a new live soundtrack using a combination of mechanical and digital sound design. Together they recreate every musical note, line of dialogue, horrified scream, and mysterious footstep live on stage, while the film looms large behind them.

With each intake of breath, or note played they emphasise meanings, enhance moods and change the atmosphere at the drop of a hat as they manipulate the audience through a rollercoaster of emotion, from light hearted giggles to absolute fear.

A stellar cast of New Zealand actors, Cameron Rhodes, Fern Sutherland, Bronwyn Bradley and Charlie McDermott as well as musicians from Leon’s band Dr Colossus and Foley artist Gareth Van Niekerk bring both these cinematic gems of gothic horror to life.

It’s immersive, musical and theatrical and not to be missed.

World Premiere - Dementia 13
Trailer: http://vimeo.com/42606842

Black and white cult classic Dementia 13 (1963) from legendary director Francis Ford Coppola is gothic horror stylishly crafted on a shoestring budget. Punctuated with spine tingling axe murders, Dementia 13 is Coppola’s first “legitimate” directorial feature; a stylish psychological thriller, cult camp classic and slasher film.
“He (Roger Corman the Producer) wanted it to be homicidal, sort of a copy of Psycho, You know, gothic and psychological with some kind of terrible knife killing scene thrown in.” Francis Ford Coppola
When the cold and calculating femme fatale Louise Haloran covers up the death of her wealthy husband, she manages to conceal the body and travels to his family castle in Ireland to ensure she is not cut out of Lady Haloran's will. But all doesn’t go to plan as family secrets are revealed and a mysterious axe murderer picks the family off one by one.
