Great movie! Picture was sharp, good sound and the crowd clapped for their fave actors and laughed as well. Only glitch - my tix were printed for the wrong theatre. AMC was a class act and most gracious to us so no complaints here. Can't wait for the next movie!

This was a fantastic idea and I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation......what could be better than seeing these two classics a week before Halloween. Would love to see more presentations like this.

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.

I have always been a fan of Universal's Classic Movie Monsters since I was a kid and seeing Frankenstein / Bride Of Frankenstein on the big screen was quite a pre-Halloween treat for me that I never thought I would ever get to experience.
Seeing these two classics in a theatre on the big screen was like stepping back in time for three hours and experiencing what people in 1931 / 1935 experienced when they saw these two giants for the first time from Universal.
The only thing better would have been being able to see Dracula and The Wolf Man with these two monster classics.
The only complaint I found was not with the films but with the projectionist. It took him nearly half an hour beyond the scheduled starting time before he began the first feature and then once "Dish Network" popped up on the screen it was clear he did not know how to get the presentation going. Once he figured it out it was "history in the making" as they say in the classic hayday of Hollywood.

Both films reminded me that movies used to be enjoyable on many levels. In these two films the set design, lighting, development of secondary characters, humor and drama made for an enjoyable experience. The monster is fearsome, but tender, repulsive, but sympathetic and maybe not responsible for the murders he commits. Yet, he must pay the price as he acknowledges at the end of "Bride."
I wonder if the proponents of human cloning could learn something from these films. Perhaps some things are best left alone, even if they are doable.
