Heritage House Arts & Civic Center, 1428 Jenkins Road in Chattanooga, announces a screening of the classic horror film, "The Mystery Of The Wax Museum," on Thursday, March 15 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
There is no cost for the film. "Guaranteed to raise a bit of 'gooseflesh' to shake off the winter chill. We hope you can join us for this classic film," officials said.
About the film:
The disappearance of people and corpses leads a reporter to a museum and a sinister sculptor, Ivan Igor (Lionel Atwill) whose new wax museum boasts unusually lifelike statues.
This, one of the best of the early Technicolor horror thrillers, was directed by Michael Curtiz (Casablanca) and stars, in addition to Universal Studios stock player Atwill (the original Frankenstein series of films), the legendary Fay Wray (King Kong).
The film's screenplay would serve as the basis for the later House of Wax (1953) starring Vincent Price.
“One of the punchiest, most watchable ‘30s horror films made anywhere outside of Universal.” — Tim Brayton, Rotten Tomatoes
