‘It’s alive!’ Con Con continues ReAnimation series with outdoor showing of ‘Young Frankenstein’ on July 29

July 22, 2021

Jackson College welcomes guests to campus for another event of the Concatenation Convention: ReAnimation series, an outdoor showing of Mel Brooks’ “Young Frankenstein” at dusk (about 9 p.m.) on Thursday, July 29 (rain date Friday, July 30).

This year, Con Con presented an exploration of reanimation and the forces of nature that inspire humans to create incredible art and culture. Studies and lectures explored “Frankenstein,” “Swamp Thing,” zombies, electricity and more! Now, the community is invited to see the 1974 classic on the west side of Potter Center. “Young Frankenstein” is a hilarious send-up of Universal monster movies and the Frankenstein story, in general. The movie will be free and be sure to bring a chair or blanket to be comfortable on the grassy hill. Simple snacks will be available, but feel free to bring your own. Be sure to enter campus from Browns Lake Road.
