Monster Movie Marathon

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 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. For more information about upcoming events, visit
