The Black Pirate

Silent with Live Accompaniment by Mark Herman on the Mighty Wurlitzer. One of Douglas Fairbanks’s greatest roles, this swashbuckler is full of stunts, adventure and excitement. This was a high-budget, major production in 1926 and was a huge hit with audiences. And who knew they had an early Technicolor process in 1926?! Watch for the now famous (and often copied) sail-sliding scene, and see if you can spot Mary Pickford in her uncredited cameo. This film is rip-roaring fun, and it’s a rare treat to experience it on the big screen with live accompaniment as they did in the 1920s. And of course, September 19th is International Talk Like a Pirate Day (yep, look it up!) so come celebrate with us at Old Town Music Hall.

The Black Cat

Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein

This film may be a spoof, but it’s also an homage to the legendary monsters of Universal Studios. The three monsters (Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Lon Chaney as the Wolfman, and Glenn Strange as Frankenstein) play it straight, making the blend of comedy with horror so incredibly entertaining. A must see for any horror fan - or comedy fan!

The Wolf Man

1941 • Lon Chaney, Jr., Claude Rains As the saying goes: "Even a man who is pure in heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.” Lon Chaney Jr. stars in this horror masterpiece about a man who is attacked by a werewolf and then becomes one himself. Simply put: it’s one of the greats!

The Bride of Frankenstein

This follow-up to 1931’s Frankenstein is sheer brilliance. It features some of the most memorable scenes in cinema history -- notably the monster's encounter with a lonely hermit and the introduction of 'The Bride'. The film is regarded as the high point of Universal’s horror films and stands as a testament to the genius of director James Whale.

The Mummy

The Mummy is one of the most beloved films from Universal's classic horror period. Boris Karloff gives the film its resonance. Audiences in 1932 were frightened to death when Karloff opened his eyes for the first time. The Mummy is a true work of art that’s as much suspense thriller as it is horror.

The Invisible Man

With a brilliant performance by Claude Rains (often with only his voice), The Invisible Man gets better every time you watch it! In the 1930s, the special effects left audiences captivated. Even today we wonder how they did it without computers. Based on the H.G Wells classic story, this film is on everyone’s must- see list of horror/sci-fi classics.

Dracula

Bela Lugosi’s extraordinary performance made Dracula the most terrifying monster in movie history. When first released, the film was known to make patrons faint in the theaters and have nightmares for years. If you love scary movies, Dracula is either at the top of your list, or it will be after you see it this weekend at Old Town Music Hall.

Drácula (Spanish Version)

In the early days of sound, it was common for Hollywood studios to produce Hollywood foreign-language versions of their films (usually in French, Spanish and German) using the same sets, costumes and etc. Unfortunately, most of these foreign language versions no longer exist. The Spanish version of Dracula is an exception. In recent years this version has become more highly praised by some than the English language version. The Spanish crew had the advantage of watching the dailies from the English crew's version when they came in for the evening and they would figure out better camera angles and more effective use of lighting in an attempt to "top" it. As a result, this version's supporters consider it to be much more artistically effective.

Frankenstein

"It's Alive!" is a line that will live on forever as we recall the first moments of life for cinema’s most recognized and beloved monster of all time. Karloff's sympathetic performance evokes fear while also breaking our hearts. This film made him a huge star after years of working as an unknown actor. Frankenstein is nothing less than a classic!
