Dudley Zoological Gardens will be transformed into an open-air cinema for the first time ever this August as the famous landmark teams up with Flatpack for a special screening of the spine-chilling horror, The Bride of Frankenstein (PG) on Saturday 6 August.

The 1935 classic is directed by local boy James Whale, who was born and raised in Dudley, and remains today one of the most famous figures to emerge from the town.

The Bride of Frankenstein is part of Flatpack’s Black Country Pop-up Film Tour which is running in partnership with Creative Black Country’s Imagine That! summer season.

The frightfully good screening isn’t the only thing happening though as the evening will include a series of other spooky surprises – so take your blanket and perhaps a pillow or two to hide behind and expect the unexpected.

Dudley Castle After Dark: The Bride of Frankenstein kicks off at 8pm on Saturday 6th August at Dudley Zoological Gardens. Tickets are £10 (concs £8). To book tickets visit www.flatpackfestival.org.uk/event/bride-of-frankenstein
