Event Details

Doors open 60 minutes before the show – giving you ample time to purchase a cocktail, beverage, or movie snack, admire the Art Deco décor, and enjoy the music from the Mighty Wurlitzer organ.

When the curtain rises at 8:00 p.m., you’ll be treated to a newsreel, cartoon, previews, and the Paramount’s prize give-away game “Dec-O-Win”. The feature film begins at 8:30 p.m.

Box Office opens @ 6:00pm | Doors open @ 7:00
All Tickets: $5.00

The legendary comedy duo of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello tread the fine line between horror and humor and come up with their finest movie. They don’t just meet Frankenstein, but Count Dracula and the Wolfman, too! And not just any Dracula, but Dracula played by Bela Lugosi! (This was the only other time Lugosi played the Count on film since the original Dracula seventeen years earlier in 1931.) From the truly creepy opening scene in the wax museum to a final “cameo appearance” in the last scene, the film charges full-steam ahead and never lets up. One of the funniest and goofiest scare comedies ever!
