Frankestein: A Night at the Movies

Wednesday 6 June 2018, 6.30PM

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, we present a special festival screening at York's City Screen of the 1931 film adaptation of the same name. Directed by James Whale, the iconic horror film by Universal Pictures tells the story of a doomed scientist who brings a monster to life.

The film stars Colin Clive, Mae Clarke and John Boles, and features Boris Karloff as the monster. It was adapted from a play by Peggy Webling, which in turn is based on Mary Shelley’s novel.

The screening will be introduced by Jon Mee and Mary Fairclough.

Book tickets via the City Screen website.

A York Festival of Ideas event.

Location: City Screen, York
