Filmbar 70 presents The Satanic Rites of Dracula ( 15 December 7pm)

Filmbar 70 get you into the Christmas spirit with a Hammer studios horror classic that took the never-ending battle of the Prince of Darkness and Van Helsing...into the 1970s.

"As the year of Hammer’s 80th draws to a close, join Filmbar70 at the Mucky Pup for the last gasp of the studio’s mightiest series - ‘The Satanic Rites of Dracula’ - for FREE.
