"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!

15 min. break would be better... very stiff when over.
AMC is NOT as comfortable as Harkins
Movies: Innovative camera angles and special effects for the time.
Acting a bit stiff or over-the-top (leftover from silent days)
Worth seeing but not again unless home.

as always, it was enjoyable seeing the monster on the big screen. hopefully, they will show the mummy, the invisible man and the son of frankenstein on the big screen.

Went with my boyfriend and had a great time. Seeing these movies on the big screen gives you a different perspective. I had a Bride of Frankenstein tee shirt on and my boyfriend had Frankenstein. LOVED IT!

The movies were great! I love this idea and felt honored to be able to see them in a theater. It also gave you a really good sense of how much acting and theater evolved from 1931 to 1939. It was a great night and some great films!
