REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., Nov. 1, 2000

It’s the movie that put Transylvania on the map and the role for which Bela Lugosi became forever linked. This special screening presents the movie with original music written by Philip Glass, and performed by Glass and the Kronos Quartet, with Michael Riesman conducting. For tickets call 477-6060 or see www.utpac.org.
