Event News

A special season celebrating the monstrous cinematic creations that haunt the vaults of Universal Pictures.

This autumn, the classic movie monsters return to the big screen for a Universal Monsters season at York City Screen Picturehouse from October 20th to December 1st.

“From Dracula (1931) to the Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), Horror lies at the heart of Universal Pictures. The cinema of fear is a dark art the studio has been practising for over a century, with a hoard of the genre’s greatest creations haunting the vaults at Universal City. Now, in association with Park Circus, those vaults have been opened and the monsters are stirring once again, as the classic canon is restored in 2K.”

The list of screening dates and times for York City Screen Picturehouse are as follows:

Dracula (1931) – Thursday October 20th at 8.50pm

Frankenstein (1931) – Thursday October 27th at 8.50pm

The Mummy (1932) – Thursday November 3rd at 8.50pm

The Invisible Man (1933) – Thursday November 10th at 8.50pm

The Bride of Frankenstein (1935) – Thursday November 17th at 8.50pm

The Wolf Man (1941) – Thursday November 24th at 8.50pm

The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) – Thursday December 1st at 8.50pm

Screenings of Dracula, Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein are introduced by STARBURST's very own Jon Towlson, author of The Turn to Gruesomeness in American Horror Films, 1931-1936 (McFarland, 2016).
