Manual Cinema’s ‘Frankenstein’ Continues at City Theatre’s Hazelwood Green Drive-in (Sat., 10/10/20)

City Theatre, coming off the successful two-week run of their Drive-in Arts Festival at RIDC’s Hazelwood Green, has readied the site for another drive-in experience. This time with Manual Cinema’s Frankenstein. The film has been described as a modern, innovative adaption of Mary Shelley’s legendary novel. Frankenstein features a live musical score performed onstage while next to it, the innovative film plays on a very large movie screen.

 “The thrilling theatricality of Manual Cinema’s Frankenstein is a unique take on Mary Shelley’s classic—a perfect fit for a fall evening on the drive-in stage,” said City’s Artistic Director, Marc Masterson. “With a live score played against an original silent film using shadows and light to tell the tale, this is a Frankenstein like no other. We can’t wait to share this family-friendly production with Pittsburgh.”   

The production will runs Wednesdays through Sundays at  8 p.m. now through October 18. Tickets for Frankenstein start at $20 for subscribers and $25 for the general public. This performance is  appropriate for all ages. More information and tickets available at City Theatre’s website.
