SHIFF Special Screening: The Bride of Frankenstein - Q&A with John Waxman, Alexia Baum & Mike Matessino (10/13/19)
Presented by Universal Pictures Film Music Heritage Collection, La-La Land Records & Sleepy Hollow International Film Festival
Universal Pictures Film Music Heritage Collection, La-La Land Records and SHIFF present the 1935 classic feature film THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, starring Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester, and directed by James Whale. Arguably unparalleled in its genre, THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN has, and continues to enthrall generations with its cinematic power, a vital part of which is the film's astounding original music score by legendary composer Franz Waxman (REBECCA, SUNSET BLVD., SUSPICION, A PLACE IN THE SUN). This screening celebrates the world premiere release (in any format) of the original BRIDE score recording, which has been discovered and meticulously restored.
Post-screening Q&A with John Waxman, son of the composer, Alexia Baum, chief executive of the Universal Pictures Film Music Heritage Collection, and film music restoration producer Mike Matessino — who will take the audience behind the scenes of this beloved classic film and its immortal score.
VIP PLATINUM PASS and GOLD PASS purchases include this show, along with ALL the film festival's Music Hall events, and provide seating ahead of individual ticket purchases.
