COP A SQUAT
Teenage sniper Brenda Ann Spencer, explaining the 1979 shooting spree that left two dead and several injured, told a reporter: "I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day." Luckily for us, Bryant Park's Summer Film Festival, which takes place every Monday through August 18, provides another avenue for relieving those end-of-the-weekend dolors. Tonight, catch the classic Bride of Frankenstein (1935), starring Boris Karloff as the Monsterwho, along with his creator, Henry Frankenstein, has managed to survive the dramatic fire at the end of 1931's Frankenstein. Having given up reanimating the dead, Dr. Frankenstein is pulled back into the resurrection business when his old professorthe sinister Dr. Pretoriuskidnaps his wife and blackmails him into building a bride (famously played by Elsa Lanchester) for the sad, lonely Monster. You'll never see unrequited love quite like this again. Lawn opens at 5 for blankets and picnicking, film starts at sunset.
Mondays, 8 p.m. Starts: June 23. Continues through Aug. 18, 2008
