New Digital Restoration!

Double Feature with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (5:00, 8:45)

(1932) dir James Whale w/Boris Karloff, Melvyn Douglas, Charles Laughton, Lilian Bond, Ernest Thesiger, Eva Moore, Raymond Massey, Gloria Stuart [72 min; DCP]
Frankenstein director James Whale crafted this gloriously bonkers yet nerve-jangling tale that became the template for all spooky-house chillers to come. Stranded travelers stumble upon a strange old house, and find themselves at the mercy of a highly eccentric and potentially dangerous family. This atmospheric thriller features an unforgettable post-Frankenstein horror role for Boris Karloff, as the hulking, disfigured butler Morgan.

“An extremely credible entertainment that, creaking along at a smart pace, applauds itself with shrieks, thuds and thunderclaps.” – J. Hoberman, New York Times
