TONIGHT: Bride of Frankenstein at the Cemetery

Revel in one of L.A.'s most unique summertime treats tonight: Cinespia is screening James Whale's 1935 masterpiece Bride of Frankenstein, starring Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester, at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. That means you can watch this:While chowing down on snackies and a picnic dinner (including alcohol - we're bringing absinthe just to up the goth factor another notch) here:A truly glorious prospect, no? Here are the details, from the Cinespia website:

directed by james whale (1935 75 mins)
gates 7:30 pm movie 9:00 pm
no reservation necessary
$10 donation tickets available at gate
$5 parking available inside
as a courtesy to other moviegoers: no tall chairs!!

sparkling wit, monster pathos and mad science, bride has it all. directed with an easy playfulness, it is suprisingly sharp, sophisticated and funny, and truly one of the great horror films of all time. starring boris karloff in his most famous role as frankenstein, the film is as compelling now as when it was first made. elsa lanchester is brilliant as the bride of frankenstein, the best monster of all time!
