I enjoyed these films so much. Although I've seen them many times in my life, to see them on the big screen was such a treat for me!

THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE MOVIES. TOOK TEENAGE GRANDDAUGHTER WITH US. SHE ENJOYED THEM ALSO.
BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE I SAW FRANK ON THE BIG SCREEN...NEVER SAW HIS "BRIDE".
THE MAKE-UP WAS SO INTERESTING TO SEE...DISAPPOINTED MRS. FRANK WASN'T IN HER MOVIE MUCH.
LIKED THE PRE-SHOW INTERVIEWS WITH BELA LUGOSI'S SON AND BORIS KARLOFF'S DAUGHTER. IF I REMEMBER, BELA LUGOSI WAS A MATINEE IDOL BEFORE HE CAME TO THE USA TO MAKE FILMS.
REALLY LIKED THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THESE AGAIN ON THE BIG SCREEN AT REASONABLE PRICES.
RATED 4 STARS FOR FRANK...AND 3 FOR MRS. FRANK

"Firstly something has be said about paying 12 bucks to go see two Film's more than 80 years old! Think about the average pay for a Man in 1930.. 27.00 a Month.. so 12.00 would have gone much further than seeing both of these classics then.
Having said that historically speaking, James Whale directs all the way up to the all-time Classic Monster Movies of all time list. Colin Clive (Doctor Frankenstein) is drawn to meddle in things that man should leave alone. That is robbing grave yards, body snatching so he could "make a artifical Human being". Universal didn't want a talking Monster but got talked into it for the sequel. The Classic Monster Film line of all time; "HATE LIVING - LOVE DEATH! spoken by Karloff in The Bride. But truely the First Film is timeless in its protrayal of Village Vigiliantism, torch bearing wild-men stalking to hunt down the murderous Monster is unforgettable.
Screening both Films in their original aspect ratio for myself was an grand experience!

I loved seeing both movies on the big screen and cant wait to see more classics that way but, I was under the impression there were going to be interviews with Boris Karloffs Son, Bela Lugosi JR etc.. afterwards. Was there a misunderstanding on my part?

Very good movies! I had never seen these movies before. Not exactly what I was expecting at all. These are great classic horror films. I loved watching it unrestored in original black & white. As classic horror films, these are even better than many current horror films. Now a days horror films are getting to be all about special effects, violence, and gory blood scenes. With the classics it's mainly all about the plot & the story. TCM's presentation of these films was spectacular. I especially loved the commentary & interviews prior to the film. TCM picked the perfect time to show this double feature, one week before Halloween. I would recommend this double feature!
