Academy holding Monster Festival in October


Recommended Posts

In October, the Academy celebrates the 100th anniversary of Universal Pictures with screenings of 13 classic horror films.




The first of five "Terrifying Tuesdays" at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater is October 2, with "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935) and "Dracula" (1931). Then on Monday, October 8, the Goldwyn will get eerily quiet for the rarely screened silent horror feature "The Man Who Laughs" (1928), starring Conrad Veidt and Mary Philbin in an adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel.




On Saturday, October 27, terror hits Hollywood with a "Horror Double-Double Feature" at Oscars Outdoors and the Linwood Dunn Theater, before the series wraps up on Halloween Eve with Lon Chaney in "The Phantom of the Opera" (1925).




In conjunction with the series, the Academy will launch "Universal’s Legacy of Horror: A Centennial Celebration." The new Grand Lobby Gallery exhibition of rare posters, stills and other artifacts will celebrate Universal’s distinctive contributions to the classic horror genre and the studio’s founding a century ago.


Here's a listing of the films:
