Silent Movie Classics: Two Faces of Frankenstein
October 26, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$10 – $20
Celebrating the season of dark and windy nights, hobgoblins, and scary creatures, the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation presents two landmark silent movies featuring the Frankenstein monster and accompanied by world-renowned sonic artist and organist Peter Krasinski.
The first movie is a short 1910 Thomas Edison photo-play, the first motion picture version of Mary Shelley’s classic novel. This silent movie features sophisticated special effects for its time. Unsuspecting audiences were dazzled when it was released. Now nearly 110 years old, this rarely-seen film continues to amaze audiences with its powerful visuals.
The second is the brilliant 1931 Frankenstein movie that launched Boris Karloff’s career as the famed monster. The film had no musical score, creating the perfect opportunity for improvised accompaniment by a virtuoso on the pipe organ like Peter Krasinski. Karloff’s rendition of Frankenstein is a classic horror film, scaring and delighting family audiences for over 90 years.
Tickets are $20 Adults, $10 Students, 12 & under free. Tickets are available at the door or online with more information at www.gloucestermeetinghouse.org
