DUDLEY Castle was transformed into an open-air cinema for one night only last weekend.

More than 600 people visited the famous castle courtyard on Saturday evening to watch The Bride of Frankenstein.

The 1935 film, directed by Dudley's James Whale, was preceded by a short horror film made by students from Dudley College.

Dudley Zoo joined forces with Flatpack: Assemble for the event, which saw guests entertained with a series of ghostly projections on the ramparts.

Ian Francis, director at Flatpack: Assemble, said: “We couldn’t have found a more fitting venue for Bride of Frankenstein than Dudley Castle.

"There's a real passion for film across the Black Country and we hope the success of this event will lead to more pop-up screenings in the future.”

Matt Lewis, manager at Dudley Zoo, added: “We were happy to work alongside Flatpack: Assemble to bring Bride of Frankenstein to the 11th century Dudley Castle and were delighted with the event’s popularity.

"Hopefully we can join forces again in the future on similar projects.”
