Universal's Legacy of Horror: Bride of Frankenstein & Dracula

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science launches "A Monstrous Centennial: Universal's Legacy of Horror" with this double bill of classic black-and-white horror films. DRACULA (1931) is a bit dated but still enjoyably thanks to wonderful atmosphere and performances, especially by Bela Lugosi as the Count. THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935) represents the height of the first great era of movie monsters: a lavishly produced, big-budget affair handled with master craftsmanship by director James Whale, who injects welcome comic relief and sometimes outright camp, livening up the proceedings considerably.

A Monstrous Centennial: Universal's Legacy of Horror" includes a series of classic horror films from Universal Studios, plus an exhibition of posters stills and artwork in the main gallery of the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre.

Location: Samuel Goldwyn Theater 8949 Wilshire Boulevard Beverly Hills, CA 90211

Date: October 2 at 7:30pm
