A perfect accompaniment to Burien Actors Theatre’s Young Frankenstein, film critic Robert Horton will share his insights into the original 1931 film version of Frankenstein and the 1930s film industry at BAT on Monday, Oct. 14 at 7 p.m.

Horton, a critic on National Public Radio and film instructor at Seattle University, recently wrote a book about the 1931 movie, which is the first in a three-film series to be shown as part of the Highline Historical Society’s “Hope in Hard Times” film series at Burien’s The Tin Theater.

Admission to the lecture is included in the price of ticket(s) to the film series. Without film tickets, admission is $8 at the door.

BAT is located at 14501 4th Ave SW.

Three excellent and beloved films about the 1930s will be featured in this series: Frankenstein, To Kill a Mockingbird and It’s a Wonderful Life. Each $15 ticket covers the movie and one free drink from the 1930s, i.e., a Cosmopolitan or other favorite.

Here’s a trailer for the film:

Here’s the classic “It’s alive!” clip from the film:

The Tin Theater is located at 923 SW 152nd Street, and moviegoers must be 21 years of age or older.
