Young Frankenstein 25th Anniversary Screening

Mel Brooks and Cloris Leachman In-Person!! Brand-New 35 mm. Print!






Thursday, November 4, 1999 – 8:00 PM

YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, 1974, 20th Century Fox, 105 min. Hard to believe, but it’s been 25 years since director Mel Brooks launched his hilariously abby-normal homage to 1930’s monster movies on American audiences – one of the strangest, funniest, most brilliantly conceived comedies since the heyday of the Marx Bros. Gene Wilder (who co-wrote the script) stars as Dr. Frankenstein ("That’s Frankensteen") struggling to breathe life into tap-dancing monster Peter Boyle, with demented help from hunchback assistant Marty Feldman, lusty Teri Garr, neurotic girlfriend Madeline Kahn and Frau Blucher herself, Cloris Leachman.

Join us for a Special 25th Anniversary Salute to YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, with director Mel Brooks, producer Michael Gruskoff, actresses Cloris Leachman & Liz Beesley, actors Peter Boyle, Kenneth Mars & Danny Goldman, cinematographer Gerald Hirschfeld, John Morris (composer), make-up artist William Tuttle (his first movie credit was the original WIZARD OF OZ) and other members of the original cast and crew scheduled to attend - !!

Special Ticket Price of $10.00/General, $7.00/Members for this screening.
