Dear Beatles Fans: If you came out for A Hard Days Night by the Beatles at The Bottleworks...

You were sadly disappointed because we ended up screening "The Sound of Silence" instead.  And we are not talking Simon and Garfunkel either.  We had technical difficulties and had picture but no sound.  We were unable to resolve the problem that evening but the equipment is now back in operation.  PLEASE accept our humble apologies for the inconvenience.  Thank you to all the people who came out to see this and to all the kind moviegoers who tried to help us get it online. 

We were bummed too and look forward to getting the Fab Four film back on the schedule.

Cheers till then,

Amy Barnes

The Mummy

1932

Karl Freund

Boris Karloff, Zita Johann, David Manners

No Rating

72 minutes

The Mummy represented Boris Karloff's second horror starring role after his "overnight" success in Frankenstein.

Brought back to life after nearly 3,700 years, Egyptian high priest Imhotep wreaks havoc upon the members of the British field exposition that disturbed his tomb (shades of the King Tut curse).

While disguised as a contemporary Egyptologist, he falls in love with Zita Johann, whom he recognizes as the latest incarnation of a priestess who died nearly 40 centures earlier. Spiriting Zita away to the tomb, he relates the story of how he had dared to enter her ancestor's sacred burial crypt, hoping to restore her to life. Caught in the act, he was embalmed alive and his tongue was cut out for his act of sacrilege. Now that he has returned, he intends to slay Zita, so that they will be reunited for all time in the Hereafter. Despite its melodramatic trappings,

The Mummy is essentially a love story, poetically related by ace cinematographer and first-time director Karl Freund. Jack Pierce's justly celebrated makeup skills offers us two Karloffs: the wizened Egyptologist and the flaking, rotting mummy, who though only seen for a few seconds remains in the memory long after the film's final image has faded. Best line: "It went for a little walk."

The Mummy was followed by four stock footage-laden sequels, none of which approached the power and poignancy of the original.

Author of this synopsis is Hal Erickson and this information was taken from the free publicity offered by Swank Films.

Up Next: Frankenstein screens on Thursday February 6, 2014

http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi1168638233/Frankenstein

1931

Universal Pictures

Directed by James Whale

Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Mae Clarke
Not Rated

71 minutes
 
The most famous horror film of all time. When brilliant but deranged Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) attempts to create life out of the organs of dead bodies, a grotesque, pitiful monster (Boris Karloff) is born. Screenwriter Robert Florey devised the now-famous plot twist in which the monster is accidentally given a madman's brain adding additional terror to Mary Shelley's original dark and foreboding tale.

"It's alive!!!"

This marks Film II of our Universal Monster Series.

Funds generated from this series will help AUDP promote the practice of Universal Design in the built environment and the value it adds to daily living for everyone.

$6 suggested for screening.
