80th Anniversary Screenings of 'Dracula' and 'Frankenstein' in Pomona, California

1931 was the most important year in the history of horror cinema, setting loose the definitive appearances of the three major monster archetypes: the vampire in Tod Browning's Dracula, the creation monster in James Whale's Frankenstein, and the transformation monster in Rouben Mamoulian's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. 80 years later, The Pomona Fox Theater in Pomona, California, is paying tribute to two of these films on February 20 with a double-feature of Dracula (3 PM) and Frankenstein (4:45PM). A discussion panel will follow. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children, presumably because they don't take up as much room.

Be sure to keep tuning in to Psychobabble for 80th Anniversary Monster Mania throughout 2011. Guranateed to me monstery and maniacal in equal proportion...

  1. Wish I could go, but have a show at the same time. Still, it's nice to see them still remembered.
