Because our September and October wasn’t filling up already, the Music Box has decided to screen some of the Universal classics in their Universal Horror: A Matinee Series, starting at 11:30am on each weekend listed below. Plus the fact that these are all being screened from 35mm prints! Now is your chance to see some of these essential titles from our horror history but on the big screen like they were meant to be seen! Here’s the schedule for this series:
Sept. 29th & 30th – Dracula (1931)
Oct. 6th & 7th – The Invisible Man (1933)
Oct. 20th & 21st – Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932)
Oct. 27th & 28th – The Mummy (1932)
But that ain’t all, Monster Kiddies. On Monday, Oct. 15th, head out to the Music Box for The Face of Frankenstein: Depictions of Frankenstein’s Creature from Mary Shelley to Benedict Cumberbatch. At 7pm, they will be screening James Whale’s Frankenstein (1931), also from a 35mm print.
Right after the film, the creative team from the Remy Bumppo Theatre Company will be there to lead a panel discussion to look into the different variations of Shelley’s famous creature. And don’t forget, this is the 200th anniversary of the novel’s publication. The panel starts at 8:15pm.
