Boris Karloff in the original

Sunday, October 31

11:00 AM

90th Anniversary! New 4K Restoration

(May be too frightening for younger children.)

(1931, James Whale) “It’s alive! It’s alive!” Colin Clive’s Dr. Frankenstein determines to create life itself, but proper brain procurement proves the sticking point. Boris Karloff wordlessly conveys the Monster’s humanity and terror beneath the iconic makeup. DCP. Approx. 70 min.


“FRANKENSTEIN still has the power to impress and frighten.”
– Leonard Maltin, Leonard Maltin’s Family Film Guide
