The Mount Wachusett Community College Humanities Project continues with a free Monster Movie Marathon on Saturday, March 5 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Leominster Public Library. Professor Joseph Moser of Fitchburg State University will present two film versions of Frankenstein: James Whale’s 1931 classic starring Boris Karloff, and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, directed by Kenneth Branagh, in 1994.
This program, co-sponsored by the Friends of the Leominster Library, includes a light lunch between films. Seating is limited and registration is required. Registrations are accepted online through the Calendar of Events at www.leominsterlibrary.org or by calling the library’s information desk at 978-534-7522, ext. 3.
The theme of this year’s MWCC Humanities Project, “Myths, Monsters, and Modern Science: Frankenstein’s Legacy,” takes an in-depth look at Mary Shelley’s 200-year-old novel Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus, and its impact in the modern era.
