For the first time in decades, some of the greatest Horror films of all time will return to movie theaters nationwide. In celebration of Universal’s 100th Anniversary, Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and The Birds (1963) will be arriving at cinemas near you.
NCM Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Universal Pictures have teamed up to bring these exciting films to cities all across the country. But the catch is they will only be shown one night!
A newly restored version of The Birds is the first to make its HD debut on the silver screen. The Alfred Hitchcock masterpiece will be shown Wednesday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m. Not only will viewers be treated to a stunning print, but they will also have the opportunity to hear from the film’s star, Tippi Hedren, in an exclusive interview that will play right before the film. You can see if The Birds will be arriving in your town by checking out this list.
Boris Karloff’s most memorable character, our favorite Monster, will be resurrected on Wednesday, October 24, also at 7:00 p.m . Certain locations are also offering a matinee showing. The original James Whale classic will be followed by the sequel, Bride of Frankenstein, making the Frankenstein event quite reminiscent of the Monster Movie Double Features of yesteryear. Bela Lugosi, Jr. along with Sara Karloff and Rick Baker have all been interviewed, and those interviews will be showcased before the start of the first film.
