Camp, humor and horror collide in one of the greatest sequels ever.
Break out the hairspray and spend Halloween with Elsa Lanchester and Boris Karloff! This year, our hugely popular annual celebration of horror and live music at the breathtaking Theatre at Ace Hotel presents film director James Whale's chilling The Bride of Frankenstein, with one of the most iconic "wedding" scenes in cinematic history.

Listen to a bit of Franz Waxman's spooky score below:
"Waxman’s superb seminal score for The Bride of Frankenstein is as iconic as the movie itself... What sets his effort here apart was his success, his brilliance in speaking to the complex elements of the film’s narrative; the horror, the grotesque, the sinister and the comedic. That he was able to succeed on all counts reveals genius."
This presentation takes place at the Theatre at Ace Hotel (929 S. Broadway Los Angeles, CA 90015).
The running time is one hour and 15 minutes.
