It’s tough to shake a bad reputation. We keep trying to explain to all our high school classmates that we’re not “dirty whores.” We’re just really popular and don’t like taking showers. In this Mel Brooks classic, Dr. Frankenstein's grandson spends years trying to live down the family reputation as being grave-digging psychopaths. But after inheriting his granddad Victor Von Frankenstein’s castle, the family ways and old reanimation experiments become too tempting for the young Frankenstein to ignore. Featuring the most hilarious rendition of “Puttin’ on the Ritz” ever to grace film, Young Frankenstein is a must-see on the big screen this Halloween season. So hop on your bicycle and head to Regency South Coast Village for classic film night, and bring a friend. Don’t let those comparisons to the town bicycle stop you. They’re all just jealous.
