An MBC Premiere HD DIGITAL Presentation!
In collaboration with Emerging Pictures
World Theatrical HD Premiere!

Frankenstein (Directed by James Whale/1931/71 mins.)

With Boris Karloff, Colin Clive, Mae Clarke, John Boles
“The Original Horror Show” James Whale is most famous for this early film of the Universal Horror cannon. . . the one that started it all for a studio is dire need of a successful image, and the one that was followed by a series of sequels and related entries in the world’s most famous and respected horror cycle. Boris Karloff plays the monster. Colin Clive plays Dr. Frankenstein. Together they made history under Whale’s direction, and now, the film is finally HD digitally restored for eternity. Be the first to see it in pristine condition!

MAXIMUM STIMULATING SHOCK, but the thing is handled with subtle change of pace and shift of tempo that keeps attention absorbed to a high voltage climax, tricked out with spectacle and dramatic crescendo, AFTER HOLDING THE SMASH SHIVER ON A HAIR TRIGGER FOR MORE THAN AN HOUR. . .Rush!
” -Variety, 1931

Don't miss the MBC Exhibition for OCTOBER!
By illustrator ROB KELLY
Re-inventions of movie posters for the classic Universal monster films!

“I am a HUGE fan of the classic Universal Pictures' Classic Horror Monsters films-Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature of the Black Lagoon, The Mummy, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Invisible Man. So I came up with the concept of producing a series of posters for the films, pretending as though they were being re-released in theatres. I wanted to have them be a combination of retro and modern design styles. I kept thinking, what would catch my eye while walking through a theatre lobby? I wanted them to have a cohesive look, since they were all part of this imaginary reissue series. But, of course, they each needed to look distinctive, too--from the Grand Guignol horror of the Frankenstein films, the moodiness of Dracula, and the later, more studio-backlot-ish style of The Wolfman.”-Illustrator Rob Kelly

The exhibition of these posters at MBC is the debut of the designs in large format. Come experience them all October, and into November! For more info on Rob Kelly, visit
