Celebrate the sillier side of the spooky season at the inaugural MoPOP Matinee of Young Frankenstein (1974) with a reading from The New Annotated Frankenstein by Leslie S. Klinger and the unveiling of a new Mary Shelley bust by sculptor Bryan Moore in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.
From the wacky, wonderful mind of Mel Brooks comes a monstrously good comedy. When a medical lecturer (Gene Wilder) inherits his grandfather’s Transylvanian estate, it’s only a matter of time before he begins to recreate the older man’s gruesome experiments to create a man from human body parts.
MoPOP Matinees celebrate cinematic art through diverse screenings of both popular and indie films in MoPOP’s JBL Theater.
Leslie S. Klinger is the editor of numerous books, including the best-selling The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, The New Annotated Dracula, and The New Annotated H. P. Lovecraft. He lives in Malibu, California.
