Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein|Ravencraft’s Vault of Horror
December 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Keep your eyes on the discussion for other news as it comes up.
Don’t let the nature of this film keep you away. Will it be a little silly? Yes! Will it by scary? Not as much. This is a classic, though, where some of the greats in horror took the time to poke some fun at themselves. (Not something that you see so much anymore.)
It’s 1948. The comedy duo, Abbott and Costello are strong. Their radio show was running and they were cranking out films. The director, Charles Barton, had worked with A&C before and later did a lot of direction for Disney’s live-action television programs. The Universal Classic Monster actors step in, with Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Glen Strange as the Frankenstein monster, and Lon Chaney, Jr. as The Wolfman.
We will also be having a horrible gift exchange, for those who want to participate. Bring a thing… any thing… We’ll follow the typical office-party rules. Enjoy the look of wonder on someone’s face as they take away something that you wanted to get rid of anyway. Horror themes are encouraged, but not demanded.
Donations for this event will go to Doctors without Borders.
This interactive event takes place in the amazing 3-screen viewing room at Mister Tramps, where there’s not a bad seat in the house. Saul Ravencraft, Wizard is you host for horror classics, old and new. Enjoy each horrible reel with a live audience, the way they were intended to be seen. In between reels, Saul will share some of his paranormal entertainment, featuring some of his strange artifacts and “games” designed to push the boundaries and prove that there are, indeed, more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
Mister Tramps Sports Pub & Cafe has a fantastic food and drink menu, so come hungry. The more food and drink you buy the more they love us!
