On a chilled night, a brilliant young scientist brings a corpse back to life. Piper’s take on Mary Shelley’s classic tale of horror will be augmented by live music and six original rear film projections. Each film offers a glimpse into the mystery of the man behind the Creature. One film is being released each week leading to the opening night of Frankenstein, July 5th.
