October always brings around the creepies and the crawlies and scares galore, and what better way to celebrate Halloween than with a big-screen double dose of everyone’s favorite lumbering monster?
Turner Classic Movies and NCM Fathom are teaming up again to bring a double feature of the classic Universal horror films Frankenstein (1931) and Bride of Frankenstein (1935) to theaters nationwide for one night only, on Wednesday, October 24th!
Each film has been newly restored in honor of Universal Studios’ 100th anniversary this year. The screening will be hosted by Robert Osborne and will feature exclusive interviews that the venerable TCM host conducted at April’s TCM Classic Film Festival with Sara Karloff, daughter of the films’ star, the legendary Boris Karloff; Bela Lugosi, Jr., son of another classic horror icon, Dracula star Bela Lugosi; and Rick Baker, seven-time Academy Award-winning makeup artist (for An American Werewolf in London, Ed Wood, and most recently The Wolfman, among others).
For more information about this event and to find a participating theater near you, check out the Fathom Events site.
Note: The double feature begins at 7PM local time. However, some locations may also feature matinee showings of the films. Check your city’s theater listings for more details.
