Baxter Avenue Theater presents the double feature 'Abbott & Costello Meet Franke
Print this page

At last! October – the finest month of the year. Winter is nice, but it can get very cold, and Spring is no good because it means Summer is just around the corner, and Summer here in the Valley is hell on Earth. October brings the confirmation of Fall – cooler temperatures, colorful leaves, the best beer of the year, and juices of creativity flowing through [at least] my veins. Also: Halloween. Candy, pumpkins, and monsters.

And monster movies.

Tomorrow – Saturday – Baxter Avenue Theater presents a late (but not quite midnight) double feature. It starts at 10:00 with Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein.

Of course, that's not the only classic monster the encounter – our two intrepid comedians also have the [mis]fortune of running into Dracula and the Wolf Man (played by Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney, Jr., respectively – both of whom played these characters in the original film classics).

Stick around for

Dracula,

which starts at approximately 11:45. This is the 1931 classic starring the above-mentioned Bela Lugosi and directed by Tod Browning. It's the story we all know and love – the unsuspecting Renfield travels to Transylvania to meet the mysterious Count Dracula for a business transaction, not realizing the supernatural reality of this creature. When Dracula comes to England, all hell breaks loose as he sets his sights on the beautiful Mina.

It all starts at 10:00 at Baxter Avenue Theater, which is located at 1250 Bardstown Road, in Mid-City Mall. Further theater information and advance ticket sales can be found at the Baxter Avenue Theater website.

About Allan Day

There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
