Frankenstein returns to theaters

F0120f94d5a42ab5853a8d72bd5d36cf4.jpgathom events brings Benedict Cumberbatch’s Frankenstein to theaters October 22 and 29 for a return engagement.

They say:

Frankenstein (2018 Encore)
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle, this thrilling production features both Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein and his Creature. October 22 will feature Cumberbatch as the Creature and October 29 will feature Miller as the Creature – a chance for audiences to see both versions.

The original production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011 and has since become an international sensation.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

A Tribute to Aretha Franklin – The Blues Brothers

Just in from Cleveland Cinemas –

THE CEDAR LEE THEATRE PAYS TRIBUTE TO MUSICAL ICON ARETHA FRANKLIN

Special showing of “The Blues Brothers” on the big screen

(Cleveland, OH) – Musical icon and “Queen of Soul,” Aretha Franklin, passed away at the age of 76 on August 16th. With a career that spanned 7 decades, few people have had an impact like Franklin. While it’s her musical legacy that she will be forever remembered, she has also left us with one truly great cinematic moment. As Mrs. Murphy in THE BLUES BROTHERS, she blew the roof off of the diner in one of the early moments of the film.

The Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.) will present THE BLUES BROTHERS on Wednesday, August 22nd at 7:00 PM giving Clevelanders a chance to experience this classic comedy on the big screen. Packed with incredible music, including Franklin’s showstopper, “Think,” THE BLUES BROTHERS stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as two brothers “on a mission from God” to save their Catholic orphanage in which they grew up.

Tickets to see THE BLUES BROTHERS are $6 and are on sale at the Cedar Lee Theatre or online at clevelandcinemas.com.

Straight outta SDCC… DC Comics!

With all the big San Diego Comic Con announcements, I thought I’d share the best of them in a few posts this week.

You can’t get SDCC without DC, So what’s up at DC / Warner? It looks like they are releasing a live-action Teen Titans tv series in the dark, grim, and gritty mold of the Batman films or the TV series Gotham. The series Titans is set to debut on DC’s $75 a year streaming service. They reversed course from the animated series’ light and happy model for some real darkness. Look for it in the latter half of 2018.

Over at Warner Brothers, DC has steered the venerable Shazam comic book in the exact opposite direction. The cinematic Shazam ripples with silliness and a light-hearted air only seen in DC’s animated features, though not even all of those. Shazam is scheduled for release April 5, 2019.
