Description

This Halloween, travel to the pre-code Hollwood era with a double feature screening of the original Dracula and Frankenstein for their 90th anniversaries! Both are presented in the meticulously produced 2012 restorations by Universal Studios.

Dracula
Bela Lugosi wants to suck your blood in Tod Browning's monster classic! Featuring dynamic visuals by German cinematographer Karl Freund (a collaborator of F. W. Murnau, of Nosferatu fame) and a towering performance by Lugosi, this is the standard by which all portrayals of the suave yet deadly vampire count are measured.

Frankenstein
James Whale's Frankenstein is alive!!! with terror and a supremely humane performance by screen legend Boris Karloff - all the more magnificent for it being entirely wordless. Few movie monsters have been as ghoulish yet pitiable as Frankenstein's monster and Whale's classic exemplifies those qualities.

There is a 10-minute intermission between the films.
