Universal Classic Horrors at the Strand Theatre

The Strand Theatre in Shelbyville, IN, has announced this year’s Friday Night Frights schedule and once again, makes me wish I lived closer to the theater! We all know and love the Universal Classic Monsters (or at least we should!) but few fans have had the opportunity to see them in a movie theater on the big screen. Well, if you live near the Indianapolis area, now you have your chance.

The Strand Theatre will be screening 10 titles from the classic era, starting with Dracula (1931) on Feb. 10th and moving through up to The Creature with the Black Lagoon (1954) in November. See below for the complete list and the dates, or you could check out their website for all the latest details, as well as other screenings they might be having.

We’ve been to the Strand last summer to see a screening of Gorgo (1961), and it is just a beautiful theater. It runs completely on volunteers, ticket sales, and donations, so it is so important to keep these types of establishments open and thriving, that continue to give the public some amazing shows. You can check out their website HERE.
