I saw both features while at a conference in Denver, Co. It was great to see a horror movie without blood and guts. Some scenes were very funny. Especially enjoyed the interviews before the films.

Movies were terriffic on the big screem much better than the tube or home theater atmosphere. The resolution great with great blacks and white seperation. Would like to see more of these films in the big screem format.
The only regrets were the theater we saw it in AMC 30 in olathe Kansas we met there because my cousin lives in Kansas I in Missouri so it was about 1/2 way for both of us. The seats were the most uncomfortable and hard plus made our backs sweat. The refereshments were grossly overpriced 2 small sodas 2 Hotdogs and 1 medium bag of Popcorn $28.00
I realize things have gone up but same thing on Missouri side is a little under $20.00 and the seats are way more comfortable at the Eastglen where we go.

The pre show trivia was only 3 questions and they never mentioned Frankenstein at all.
There was a 5-6 second scene cut out from Frankenstein. It showed the monster pushing the little girl Maria down into the water......What gives? The remastering could have been a bit better.

Like a lot of monster fans I've only seen the original Universal horror films on television, so I was delighted to have this chance to see "Frankenstein" and "Bride" in a theatre. I'm glad to say that it was a mostly terrific experience. The program was about 20 minutes late in starting and there were digital glitches several times through the films, which was annoying. However the overall film quality was great, as was the sound, and the uncut version of "Frankenstein" was shown, which in 40+ years as a monster fan I'd never had the chance to see before! I wish more people had turned out as this was an exceptional experience with two ageless classics.

It's been over 80 years since Boris Karloff first lumbered across the screen as "The Monster" - and it's great to see the movie as it must have appeared to audiences in 1931. The print has been very well restored - almost every frame is clear, clean and scratch free.
For me, the biggest treat was the sound. I've seen both these movies many times, but there was always a background hum, especially in the original "Frankenstein" - the signal to noise ratio wasn't great in 1931 - to hear anything, they had to crank up the sound to hear voices, and if someone wasn't speaking, you heard the hum.
In both of these films, for the most part the sound was clean and almost crisp. In the opening scene on "Frankenstein", you practically felt like you were positioned on the wrong side of the coffin lid as the dirt was shoveled into the grave.
The added interview feature with Bela Legosi, Jr., Sarah Karloff and makeup master Rick Baker was a plus.
Great films - worth going.
