Recommended Halloween 2014 Screenings: Bride of Frankenstein at Arclight

Arclight Cinemas presents a pair of Halloween screenings of the black-and-white 1935 classic. Directed by James Whale, The Bride of Frankensteinis probably the greatest horror film from the early sound era, a black-and-white masterpiece that mixes fantasy, thrills, and black humor. Boris Karloff as the monster, with Colin Clive as Frankenstein. Elsa Lanchester is the Bride, and Ernest Thesiger is great as the sinister Dr. Pretorius. Though readily available on home video, The Bride of Frankenstein truly comes alive when seen with a live audience, and its tone is perfect for the Halloween season. Recommended.

  • October 6 at 7:30pm – The Arclight Beach Cities, 831 S. Nash Street, El Segundo, CA 90245. Click here
