For all you fans of classic horror out there (and who isn’t?), we have some fantastic news for you. Many of you were too young to have ever seen FRANKENSTEIN or THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN on the big screen when they were released so many years ago, or during their re-release. A good deal of you may also have been too young to catch THE BIRDS in theaters as well. Well that’s all about to change as Turner Classic Movies, in partnership with Fathom Events are bringing these three horror genre classics to the big screen NATIONWIDE!
From The Press Release:
This fall, NCM Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) are bringing a series of horror movie classics back to movie theaters nationwide. Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds flies back into theaters on Wednesday, September 19 and a double feature of Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein will haunt screens on Wednesday, October 24.
Each event will begin at 7:00 p.m. local time, with special matinees in select theaters at 2:00 p.m. The series will feature newly restored versions of the films created by Universal in celebration of its 100th Anniversary, and will also include a specially-produced TCM introduction by film historian, author and TCM host Robert Osborne, who will take audiences behind the scenes for each of these American classics with unique insights into their making.
