Announcing a new Meetup for Indy Film Buffs Meetup Group!

What: The Bride of Frankenstein at the IMA

When: Friday, October 29,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Indianapolis Museum of Art
4000 Michigan Road
Indianapolis, IN 46208
[masked]

Join us at the IMA on Halloween weekend for the classic Hollywood horror film "The Bride of Frankenstein." Boris Karloff returns as the monster and James Whale returns to the director's chair in this sequel to the original "Frankenstein." We're really excited about this program (really, really extra excited smile) because... the Indy Film Buffs are co-presenters of the movie! We hope you can all make it to what's sure to be a great evening.

The movie starts at 7. Find us in the IMA's Nourish Cafe from 5:30 for dinner, drinks or just to hang out before the show. We'll also gather to discuss the movie afterward.

From the IMA's website:

The Bride of Frankenstein
Friday, October 29 ? 7 pm

The Toby

Public $9
IMA Member $5
(1935, 75 minutes, dir. James Whale, PG)

Just in time for Halloween: Elsa Lanchester stars as the reluctant bride and Boris Karloff returns as the love-starved monster in this sequel to Whale?s 1931 Frankenstein. Whale added a playful sexuality to this version, casting the proceedings in a bizarre visual framework that makes this film a good deal more surreal than the original. Roger Ebert calls it ?the best of the Frankenstein movies? and ?a sly, subversive work that smuggled shocking material past the censors by disguising it in the trappings of horror?satirical and funny?an influential masterpiece of art direction.? Costumes welcome. Film shown in 35 mm. Presented in part by Indy Film Buffs.

(Haven't seen the original? Not to worry: It's the October movie of the month! We'll be watching it together at Gary's on October 24; the in-depth discussion is on October 26 at the regular fourth Tuesday Movie of the Month Meetup.)
