Description: The Friends of the Pomona Fox present a screening of the classic comedy as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of Universal Studios. Scott Essman, an instructor in Cinema Studies, will moderate a panel of guests including Ron Chaney (son of Wolf Man actor Lon Chaney Jr), Bela Lugosi Jr (son of Dracula star, Bela Lugosi), and Oscar-winning makeup artist Bill Corso. There will be a silent auction to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
ABBOTT COSTELLO MEETS FRANKENSTEIN was the last gathering of the classic movie monsters from Universal Pictures Golden Era. The comedy team of Budd Abbott and Lou Costello came face to face with the Wolf Man (Lon Chaney Jr), Dracula (Bela Lugosi), and Frankenstein’s Monster (Glenn Strange). Although the film is played for laughs, the monsters themselves come across pretty well, thanks in part to the fact that two of them are played by the actors who made them famous in the first place, Chaney and Lugosi.
Tickets: $8 for adults; $3 for children under 12. Cancer survivors get in free.
