THE BLACK CAT

1934 • Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi

 

Would you spend the night in a bizarre home atop a horrific WWI battlefield?

 

What if you were there with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff?

 

The Black Cat is a true horror classic. Karloff and Lugosi have amazing on-screen chemistry.

 

Yes, it’s macabre, but it’s great fun.

2:30PM and 8:15PM

ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN

1948 • Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, But Abbott, Lou Costello

 

This film may be a spoof, but it’s also a homage to the legendary monsters of Universal Studios. 

 

The three monsters (Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Lon Chaney, Jr. as the Wolfman, and Glenn Strange as Frankenstein) play it straight, making the blend of comedy with horror so incredibly entertaining. 

 

A must see for any horror fan - or comedy fan!

DRACULA

1931 • Bela Lugosi • Directed by Tod Browning

 

 

Bela Lugosi’s extraordinary performance made Dracula the most terrifying monster in movie history. 

 

When first released, the film was known to make patrons faint in the theaters and have nightmares for years. 

 

If you love scary movies, Dracula is either at the top of your list, or it will be after you see it this weekend at Old Town Music Hall.

FRANKENSTEIN

1931 • Boris Karloff 

 

 

"It's Alive!" is a line that will live on forever as we recall the first moments of life for cinema’s most recognized and beloved monster of all time.

 

Karloff's sympathetic performance evokes fear while also breaking our hearts.

 

This film made him a huge star after years of working as an unknown actor. 

 

Frankenstein is nothing less than a classic!

THE MUMMY

1932 • Boris Karloff

 

The Mummy is one of the most beloved films from Universal's classic horror period.

 

Boris Karloff gives the film its resonance.

 

Audiences in 1932 were frightened to death when Karloff opened his eyes for the first time.

 

The Mummy is a true work of art that’s as much suspense thriller as it is horror.

THE INVISIBLE MAN

1933 • Claude Rains

 

 

With a brilliant performance by Claude Rains (often with only his voice), The Invisible Man gets better every time you watch it!

 

In the 1930s, the special effects left audiences captivated.

 

Even today we wonder how they did it without computers.

 

Based on the H.G Wells classic story, this film is on everyone’s must-see list of horror/sci-fi classics.

It's SCI-FI Sunday!

CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON

1954 • Sci-Fi Monster Classic

 

Scientists try to capture a prehistoric humanoid beast that lurks in the depths of the Amazon.

 

This 50s flick is a lot of fun -- a fantastical monster movie deserving of its iconic cult status.

 

It’s even still scary at times!

 

Despite some stiff acting and cheesy effects, Creature is a nostalgic trip back to the good ol' days of sci-fi monster movies.

THE WOLF MAN

1941 • Lon Chaney, Jr., Claude Rains

 

 

As the saying goes: “Even a man who is pure in heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.”

 

Lon Chaney Jr. stars in this horror masterpiece about a man who is attacked by a werewolf and then becomes one himself.

 

Simply put: this film one of the greats!

BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN

1935 • Boris Karloff

 

 

This follow-up to 1931’s Frankenstein is sheer brilliance.

 

It features some of the most memorable scenes in cinema history -- notably the monster's encounter with a lonely hermit and the introduction of 'The Bride'.

 

The film is regarded as the high point of Universal’s horror films and stands as a testament to the genius of director James Whale.

• With Live Accompaniment on the Mighty Wurlitzer •

The original 1925 silent version of The Phantom of the Opera.  Lon Chaney embodies the title character, a badly disfigured man in the catacombs of the Paris Opera House.

THE MALTESE FALCON

1941 • Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor

The Maltese Falcon is a classic film noir starring Humphrey Bogart as private investigator Sam Spade, and Mary Astor as his femme fatale.

 

Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet and Gladys George round out the incredible cast.

 

Three of the prop falcon statuettes still exist and are valued at over $1 million each -- far more than the $300k it cost to make the film.

 

Come savor this iconic masterpiece on the big screen.

Harold Lloyd in

GIRL SHY

1924 • Silent
With Live Accompaniment on the Mighty Wurlitzer

 

 

Harold Lloyd was one of the most popular and influential film comedians of the silent film era, alongside Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton.

 

Girl Shy was one of the first romantic comedies ever filmed!

 

Lloyd considered this a “character piece” and not a “gag film” -- although the end sequence is an exciting and memorable action sequence.

This iconic film is one of the American Film Institute's “Most Inspiring Movies of All Time.”
