Join us for a spooky family screening of Frankenweenie, a non stop motion sci-fi family film directed by Tim Burton. It is a remake of Burton’s 1984 short film of the same name and is a parody of and an homage to the 1931 film Frankenstein based on Mary Shelley‘s book of the same name.
Like both those films, Frankenweenie is in black and white. It is also the fourth stop-motion film produced by Burton and the first of those four that isn’t a musical. In the film, a boy named Victor loses his dog, named Sparky, and uses the power of science to resurrect him. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, everyone soon learns that getting a new ‘leash on life’ can be monstrous.
