Young Frankenstein 

When: Wed., Oct. 5, 7 p.m. 2016
Price: $10-$12.50
Is Young Frankenstein the best comedy of all time? It's hard to argue against it. Elegantly spoofing the long chain of Frankenstein movies while still delivering a solid story is tough to do, but Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder make it look easy. Wilder portrays young Frederick Frankenstein (it rhymes with "bonkensteen" when he says it) as a sensitive scientist with a latent wildness. When he inherits the family castle and discovers his grandfather's scientific notes, that wild side takes over and he embraces his destiny: He will teach his creation to be a song-and-dance man or die trying. Fathom Events presents a one-night only screening of Young Frankenstein tonight at 7 p.m. at the Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; Brooks will introduce the film via a live hook-up from Hollywood. Tickets are $10 to $12.50.
