Young Frankenstein Nite - Movie & Masquerade After-Party
It's become a tradition at the Loew's: Take in a favorite Halloween-esque movie on the Big Screen, and then enjoy a real, live Masquerade Party in the Grand Lobby - including music & dancing, food, cash bar, and a costume contest for fun prizes!

And on top of that, it's a pretty cheap date - just $25 in advance, $30 at the door.

Advance tickets are available at https://youngfrankenstein-nite.eventbrite.com

As always, it's all to have good fun for a good cause: to raise money to help Friends of the Loew's continue the work of restoring the landmark Theatre and operating it as a non-profit place for the arts, entertainment and community.

So don't do anything "abby normal" and miss out!

“Young Frankenstein” Starring Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Madeline Kahn, Teri Garr, Cloris Leachman, Gene Hackman. Directed by Mel Brooks. 1974, 108 mins., B&W

Young Frankenstein (be sure to pronounce it “FrankenstEEn”) is the rarest of, dare we say, “creations”: It offers up wonderfully satisfying parody with truly un-self-conscious wit, while still becoming a unique work in its own right. When director and co-writer Mel Brooks is in top form, he can make audiences lose virtually all of their motor functions as they double over in laughter, and he was never funnier than here, working with co-writer (and star) Gene Wilder. But the best thing about “Young Frankenstein” is the reverence it pays to the films it parodies. Silly but always respectful, Brooks honors the Universal Frankenstein movies rather than skewer them. And that’s a crucial element in the film’s success: few movies are as instantly recognizable and more enjoyable than the old Frankenstein movies; had Brooks put them down or otherwise betrayed the affection so many people have for them, his work would have seemed mean spirited and therefore not entertaining. But because he embraces the old films and uses them as a framework to build his story, “Young Frankenstein” resonates with audiences and actually earns their enjoyment both for its parody and also its own distinct contributions, albeit comedic ones, to Frankenstein lore. “Abby Normal” is arguably now just as much a part of the Frankenstein canon as is “It’s Alive!” “Young Frankenstein” also benefits from a cast that is pitch perfect for their roles, and very clever recreations, or at least very recognizable derivation of key sets and props from the old films. “Young Frankenstein” is a cinematic achievement rather than a half-baked knock-off of better efforts. It was one of the funniest films of the 1970s, and has lost none of its hilarity to the passing of time, serving as a reminder of how innovative parody can be, and actually taking its place as a classic alongside the very films that inspired it.
