YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN

Two-hundred years ago Mary Shelley gave life to one of the most famous classic monsters in history. Made of human parts, the monster has ghastly appearance, but only wants to be loved. Frankenstein was a prescient science-fiction story that explored themes of human creativity, social responsibility, and scientific ethics, but do you know what happened to the grandson of Dr. Frankenstein?

Grab your torches and pitchforks and discover the hilarious story of Young Frankenstein! Plus learn everything you ever wanted to know about anatomy, ethics, electricity, and much more. We’ll host an expert to help us separate the science from the fiction following the screening. Don’t miss it!

THIS MONTH’S FILM

 

Young Frankenstein (1974) — This film is an affectionate parody of the classic horror film genre, in particular the various film adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein produced by Universal in the 1930s. Directed by Mel Brooks and starring Gene Wilder as the title character and Peter Boyle as the monster.

Young Frankenstein tells the story of the grandson of the infamous Victor Frankenstein. Spending his life under the shadow of his grandfather’s legend and even changing the pronunciation of his name, he struggles to prove that he is not as insane as people believe. After discovering Dr. Frankenstein’s diary, he begins to feel differently and returns to the family castle to replicate his grandfather’s experiments.
