Dudley Zoo's new attraction is a monster!

FANS of outdoor cinema now have two new venues in which to watch classic films this summer.

For the first time ever, Dudley Castle is being transformed into an open-air cinema for a screening of The Bride of Frankenstein on Saturday, August 6. And a week later, Soho House in Handsworth plays host to an Indian Summer Night with a screening of Slumdog Millionaire.

That's alongside all the movies being screened outside at the Brindleyplace Film Festival, mac in Cannon Hill Park and venues like Warwick Castle, the National Memorial Arboretum and Coventry Cathedral ruins.

WHAT'S ON AT DUDLEY CASTLE The spine-chilling 1935 horror film Bride of Frankenstein was directed by James Whale, who was born and grew up in Dudley.

The film, which has a PG certificate, is hailed as Whale's masterpiece and "the finest of all gothic horror movies".

Organised by the Flatpack Film Festival, the event is part of Dudley Castle After Dark, which also promises lots of "spooky surprises".

It takes place from 8pm on August 6. Tickets cost PS10, there will be food and a bar, and bring your own blanket or chair.

WHAT'S ON AT SOHO HOUSE A part of India will be brought to the elegant Georgian building in Handsworth, home of Matthew Boulton and the meeting place of the Lunar Society of scientists and forward thinkers.

Soho House will host an outdoor screening of the award-winning 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire on Saturday, August 13, from 6pm. Danny Boyle's film about an Indian slum boy who goes on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? won eight Oscars. It's a 15 certificate.

The event is part of Travelling Cinema's Indian Summer Night and includes Bollywood dancing and Indian cuisine. Tickets from PS15.
