So much fun to watch on the big screen. With TV the only format to watch the old classics the chance to see them on a big screen was priceless..

I thought the films were awesome. They were quite different from when I was. Kid. Back then I was totally frightened. Yesterday I couldn't stop laughing. Even though I laughed a lot their were parts that startled me. I would go again to see them. I had a great time. The acting was great but the music was the basis for great the films were.

Thoroughly enjoyed these two films together, as I had never seen either one on the big screen. The set designs were amazing and the lighting was superb! There was, for me and my movie partner, a feeling of sympathy for the monster, in both films. And the end line in Bride, "You stay; we belong dead." , really struck a chord with both of us. This was the 4th TCM Fathom Event presentation we've attended, and will certainly attend more! Thank you for allowing us the chance to enjoy these old classics they way they should be enjoyed; on the Big Screen!!

I saw it on the big screen, and I enjoyed it much more than on the TV screen.
Frankenstein (1931) is indeed a classic, and in my opinion was made in a serious way.
The Bride of Frankenstein seemed to be put together in a more tongue and cheek fashion, but stands out due to the short scene stealing roles of various actors. Elsa Lancaster's role as the bride is short, but brilliant. John Carradine doesn't even get billing in the credits, but overwhelms his short scene. There a number of film making incongruities like a women screaming with the monster's hand over her mouth.
These movies are no longer scary by today's standards, but are definitely enjoyable.

This exclusive screening included an introduction by the one and only Robert Osborne of TCM fame. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Mr. Osborne also interviewed Bela Lugosi, Jr. and Sarah Karloff along with the irreverent Rick Baker. There is something very satisfying in knowing that some of our favorite actors are survived by those who keep the stories alive, especially the stories behind the stories. Rick Baker is someone we have watched become a perfectionist and take great pride in his success. We wish him ever increasing success in his movie make up career. The movies themselves are true classics, to see them on the big screen in a modern day theater was a delight. You rarely have these opportunities, so take them when they come along. Please, please bring more events like this to our theaters, not just at Halloween but all year long!
