We had such an enjoyable time seeing the double feature of Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein. The picture quality was outstanding, as well as the sound. Considering they're roughly 80 year old films, nothing beats seeing them on the big screen. I hope they offer more classic horror in this format. And the interviews just added to the evening's fun.

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.

If you are a horror/terror movie fan, these two pictures are a MUST see. I saw both of them as a kid some 60 years ago (the theater audience was obviously much older than the average movie audience). As an adult this time I could not only appreciate the technical qualities of both films but the the transition in the Monster's character from a feral being in " Frankenstein"to a humanized man, searching love and acceptance in "The Bride of Frankenstein," was truly moving.The profuse used of irony and tragic reversal in "The Bride's" story gave it a substance the "Frankenstein" movie lacked altho I think both movies generated quite a bit of empathy for the "monster" and some revulsion towards his creator. Is this a parable about the relationship between God and man or, as some critics have argued, a critique of modern science an the possibility that some of its best intentions may go astray? Both movies deal with both issues and offer a provocative resolution to today's audiences.

This was a double feature and just in time for Halloween. To see these movies on the big screen was so much better than watching it at home. The sound and definition of the film was fantastic!

After some technical glitchs were resolved everything was fantastic. It was wonderful to see these two great films on the big screen. I'm hoping TCM does it again for the Mummy/Wolfman etc. It was worth every penny I spent to see them on the big screen, I have these two films in my film library but there is nothing like going to a theater with other fans and experiening it for the first time on the big screen. Please continue to present all the classics in this way. One thing I was disappointed in was that not enought people came out to see it, only about a quarter of the theater was tull, maybe because it was done on a week night, should be done on a Saturday, maybe more people would come out to see these classics.
