‘Young Frankenstein’ Providence Place
(10.5) Attention fans of Gene Wilder: If you have never seen this movie on the big screen, get some friends together and make a party. Sure it means going to the mall, but that’s where the movie is.
Fathom Events has more screenings on tap including ‘Taxi Driver,’ ‘The Shining,’ a totally Cumberbatch ‘Hamlet,’ ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ as well as some opera and ballet. This week it’s ‘Young Frankenstein’ and just look at the cast of this movie.
Young Frankenstein brings together Brooks’s inimitable style with a cast of comedy legends, including Gene Wilder as Federick Fronkensteen, Marty Feldman as shifty humpback Igor, Teri Garr as the hay-rolling lab assistant Inga, Madeleine Kahn as Dr. Frankenstein’s high-strung fiancée Elizabeth, Peter Boyle as the kind-hearted monster, an uncredited Gene Hackman as the blind man who befriends him, and Cloris Leachman as Frau Blücher! Join the young neurosurgeon (Wilder), as he inherits the castle of his grandfather, the famous Dr. Victor von Frankenstein. Young Frankenstein believes that the work of his grandfather is useless, but when he discovers the book where the mad doctor described his reanimation experiment, he suddenly changes his mind.
Writer and director Mel Brooks will introduce the film live from the 20th Century Fox Lot in Hollywood. Running time 2 hours, 20 minutes.
8pm, Wednesday, October 5, Showcase Cinema, Providence Place,
