Frankenstein’s 200th Birthday

Halloween Film Night

Films at 6, 8, and 10 pm
English Original Version with German Subtitles

Frankenstein’s creation is a close relation to the golem. The authoress Mary Shelley, who thought up Frankenstein at Lake Geneva in the rainy summer of 1816, was verifiably inspired by the golem figure. And also in the 20th century in the form of the famous silent horror film The Golem: How He Came into the World, the golem decisively influenced the iconic appearance of Frankenstein’s monster in the film classics and the parodies alike – to Frank N. Furter and his creation Rocky Horry!

6 pm - The Frankenstein Classic.

8 pm - The Parody.

The inimitable Gene Wilder stars as Young Frankenstein, Viktor Frankenstein's grandson, Mel Brook's loving persiflage of the classic Frankenstein films of the 1930s. One of the greatest comedies of all time!

10 pm - The Cult Movie.

It's just a jump to the left: a young couple stumbles upon the inauspicious doings of eccentric Dr. Frank N. Furter and his artificial creature, Rocky Horror. With a little-known Susan Sarandon as Janet, and the Time Warp!

The GOLEM-exhibition will be open until midnight.
