Don’t miss this comedic Cinema Circle screening of one of Mel Brooks’ and Gene Wilder’s delightfully hilarious films, Young Frankenstein! Respected American neurosurgeon and scientist Dr Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder), grandson of the infamous Dr Victor Frankenstein, inherits his grandfather’s castle in Transylvania. At first steadfastly refusing to follow in his grandfather's "doodoo", he changes his mind when he finds the record of Victor's research. Aided by hunchback Igor (the inimitable Marty Feldman), lab assistant Inga (Teri Garr), and housekeeper Frau Blücher (Cloris Leachman) (neigh!), Frederick becomes determined to reanimate a dead body (Peter Boyle). Let the hijinks begin!
