Young Frankenstein Gene Wilder

Fathom Events and Twentieth Century Fox are preparing to welcome you back to Transylvania to join Frederick Frankenstein (pronounced “Fronkensteen”) and his crazy cohorts for one more night of mad science and “Puttin’ on the Ritz.” In a special one-night-only event, director Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein is returning to U.S. theaters, Wednesday night, October 5th at 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT, 6:00pm MT, 5:00pm PT). Brooks will join audiences live from Hollywood. He will be introducing his 1974 classic comedy while touring the Fox lot where much of the filming took place. And of course bring your tissues, as Brooks will be remembering the late great Gene Wilder, the star and co-writer of Young Frankenstein, who passed away on August 29, 2016.

Check out the details about the screening here below.
