Bela Lugosi – King of the B’s: Here is a perfect program for the Halloween season. We explore the career of classic Hollywood horror icon Bela Lugosi. From his humble beginnings in Hungary, to his stage and screen career in Germany, Lugosi will be forever linked to his role as Dracula (1931). But Lugosi also branched out into mainstream Hollywood with appearances in such films as Ninotchka (1939). Though he often ended up typecast, Lugosi always gave stand out performances.  We are going to see film clips as well as a wealth of movie memorabilia to give a fine portrait of a man so long associated with B grade pictures who turned the product he starred into A list material.
