It was awesome to see these 2 classics on the big screen. I hope Turner Classic Movies continues to do these special showings of old movies.

Frankenstein & Bride of Frankenstein

I and three others went last night and were quite pleased. The quality of the presentation exceeded expectations. I feel the segment with Robert Osborne, Sarah Karloff,Bela Lugosi's son and Rick Baker was worth the whole price of admission. What a treat to at last see both films on the big screen in their original aspect. Superb sound added to the experience. It made me envy the first people to see these classics back in the thirties. Great job. Put more of them out there and especially the The Wolf Man, and Son of Frankenstein as well as Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man. We need less of the gore and slasher and more of real actors with superb, identifiable voices and diction. We also need better storytelling nowadays. Many Thanks.

Fantastic to see these two classic films, digitally enhanced, on the big screen. I am almost positive this was a once in a lifetime experience. Thanks TCM/Fandango/Fathom Events!

A Step Back Into The Past...

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. Thanks TCM!
