“Hope all of you enjoy the screening of this A&C classic, by far the cult film of all their movies. Wish I could be here with you to see it on the big screen, but will be there in spirit… Keep the laughter flowing, and thank you for keeping the A&C legacy alive. Enjoy the film, and Happy Halloween. Chris Costello and the entire Costello family.”
This past Thursday night (10/29/15), Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein set a new attendance record for the Pickwick Theatre Classic Film Series. Nearly 800 people (782) attended our screening, breaking the old record of 735 held by last season’s showing of Gone With the Wind. We are extremely grateful to all those who attended this Halloween event, especially the dozens of kids who came in costume.
Special thanks to Chris Costello, Lou Costello’s daughter, for the special introduction she sent us, our guest organist David Drazin, and our costume contest judges: Allison, Allie, and Elizabeth.
