Young Frankenstein

For safety’s sake, don’t humiliate him!

They showed this outdoors here in Sheffield as part of a two week festival, showing multiple films a day on a gigantic screen outside the Crucible theatre. It was great to see such a beautifully made film up on the big screen.

It was also great to share it with a group of people, all laughing along. I’m too young to have seen it in the cinema so a big thank you to Sheffield council for putting this on for free. Quite a few people walking by stopped to watch it and discovered Mel Brooks’ genius for the first time.

If you live in the area and are interested in what’s on you can find out more at Festival on the Square - there’s live music and other stuff going on.

Here’s the current line up:
