Finally Friday: Young Frankenstein


Two-hundred years ago Mary Shelley gave life to one of the most famous classic monsters in history. Made of human parts, the monster has ghastly appearance, but only wants to be loved. Frankenstein was a prescient science-fiction story that explored themes of human creativity, social responsibility, and scientific ethics, but do you know what happened to the grandson of Dr. Frankenstein?

Help us celebrate the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley´s most famous novel, Frankenstein. Grab your torches and pitchforks and discover the hilarious story of Young Frankenstein! Plus learn everything you ever wanted to know about anatomy, ethics, electricity and much more.

We’ll host Dr. Eric Juengst, Professor of Social Medicine and Director of the Center for Bioethics at UNC as this month’s expert to help us separate the science from the fiction following the screening. Don’t miss it!
