YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN Screens in 16mm Thursday Night at Schlafly Bottleworks
Good comedies are rare. Great ones are rarer. Great parodies are needles in the haystack, but YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is it. Mel Brooks hit all nails right on the head in 1974 with his black & white comedy classic. Taking its themes from the Mary Shelley novel and providing some bang-on homage/parody to the James Whale classic, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, the script and the actors in YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN respect the audience’s intelligence, and also respect the memory of the movies they’re parodying, making it one of the most beloved comedies of all time.
Now you’ll have the chance to see YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN projected outdoors on 16mm film. On Thursday, October 25th at 7pm at Schlafly Bottleworks 7260 Southwest Ave. (at Manchester), YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN will screen on a new giant screen erected in the tent area outdoors. Rain or Shine! This event is FREE but it’s a fundraiser for the National Children’s Cancer Society so feel free to donate what you can to the donations jar that will be set out for this worthy charity.
