GARY LUCAS is just back from Hollywood, where he packed the Silent Movie Theatre accompanying the 1931 Spanish “Dracula” with his original solo guitar score:
 A Pick in the LA Weekly and the LA Times
“Your performance last night at the Cinefamily Silent Movie Theatre was great. Having seen the film multiple times, I had my doubts, but your playing enhanced the whole experience”.
      –Pancho Kohner, the son of Spanish “Dracula” star Lupita Tovar and Hollywood producer Paul Kohner
This was Gary’s second stellar performance with Spanish “Dracula” this summer, after his appearance at the Jerusalem Film Festival early July.
