    • The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

    • Date: 10/21 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: James Whale | Cast: Boris Karloff Colin Clive Valerie Hobson

      Plot: This greatest of all Frankenstein movies begins during a raging thunderstorm. Warm and cozy inside their palatial villa, Lord Byron (Gavin Gordon), Percy Shelley (Douglas Walton), and Shelley's wife Mary (Elsa Lanchester) engage in morbidly sparkling conversation. The wicked Byron mockingly chastises Mary for frightening the literary world with her recent novel Frankenstein, but Mary insists that her horror tale preached a valuable moral, that man was not meant to dabble in the works of God. Moreover, Mary adds that her story did not end with the death of Frankenstein's monster, whereupon she tells the enthralled Byron and Shelley what happened next....

    • Barbarella (1968)

    • Date: 10/28 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Roger Vadim | Cast: Jane Fonda, John Phillip Law, Anita Pallenberg

      Plot: This film, along with other stunning classics such as "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls," are sure proof that the age of really, really kitschy yet great films is behind us. Set in the 41st Century, the astronaut Barbarella goes in search of the evil renegade scientist Durand Durand and manages to stumble across what must be the grooviest planet this side of "Vegas in Space." In her quest to find Durand Durand ("Pardon me, but do you know Durand Durand?") Barbarella saves the day with a bubble of goodness and some help from her blind angel friend Pygor.  It's impossible, given our current climate of cynicism, to produce good quality camp like this today. All attempts to reproduce a film that could only come out of the swinging 60's like Barbarella would fail. The New York Times called Barbarella "the most iconic sex goddess of the 60's." This film popularized the comic book heroine and has influenced their design ever since.  I cannot recommend this fun, campy, and original comic book film highly enough - run, do not walk, to see it.
