Classic fright films showing at the Bing

 

Scary Halloween movies are nothing new, and some of the best of them were made decades ago, said Bill Stimson, president of the Advocates for the Bing Crosby Theater, a nonprofit organization in Spokane.

As part of its fall classic film series now under way, the group is presenting three vintage flicks tonight at the Bing Crosby Theater at Sprague Street and Lincoln Avenue in downtown Spokane.

The films are the 1948 “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein” at 6 p.m., Boris Karloff in the 1945 film “The Body Snatcher” at 7:30 p.m. and the 1922 silent Dracula film “Nosferatu” at 9 p.m.

A $5 donation for the evening’s entertainment is suggested, and refreshments are available for purchase.
