Capitol Halloween Double Feature
*Film: THE MUMMY (1933) &
THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935)

Saturday, October 25, 7:00 pm

Brought to you by Voce & Iles, CPAs.

Famed cinematographer Karl Freund (Metropolis, Dracula) made his directorial debut with The Mummy, a tale of British archaeologists who uncover the ancient sarcophagus of a mummified Egyptian priest (Boris Karloff). Foolishly ignoring its warning not to open the box, the mummy takes the form of a modern Egyptian and quickly begins his quest to resurrect the soul of his love, which he believes has been reincarnated in a modern woman (Zita Johann).

Described by some critics as a sequel that bested its predecessor, The Bride of Frankenstein revives the famous monster, masterfully played by Boris Karloff.  Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) wants to get out of the evil experiment business, but when a mad scientist, Dr. Pretorius (Ernest Theisinger), kidnaps his wife, Dr. Frankenstein agrees to help him create a new creature, a woman, to be the companion of the monster.  Co-starring Elsa Lanchester, Valerie Hobson and Dwight Frye.  Directed by James Whale.
