Monster Mashup Movie Night

Thu April 23, 2020 @ 20:30 - 22:30

Join us and Cinema Moderne for a free live stream of the 1974 film Young Frankenstein!

Directed by Mel Brooks and starring Gene Wilder, this cult classic follows the grandson of the infamous Dr. Frankenstein, as he inherits the family estate in Transylvania and resumes the peculiar experiments once conducted by his deceased grandfather. Parodying the cinematic conventions of horror, this film puts a comedic spin on the oft-adapted story of Frankenstein

Did you know? Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein is widely thought to be based on the myth of the Golem, a story that continues to be re-interpreted by many modern and contemporary artists alike, including our current exhibiting artist, Dina Goldstein. You can see her interpretation of seven different scenes, pulled from the pages of beloved Jewish fables here

The film will be streamed by the Museum on Zoom. To get the streaming link, register for a ticket through Eventbright and we will email you the the streaming link on the day of the screening.
