The movie parody has been a staple of Hollywood comedies in the last few decades, but few have combined razor-sharp wit with genuine affection as effectively as Mel Brooks’s 1974 homage to the Golden Age of monster movies. Following directly on the heels of his blockbuster Western spoof Blazing Saddles, Brooks teamed with its star, Gene Wilder, on a screenplay that would earn them an Oscar nomination. Wilder stars as the arrogant Frankenstein heir who travels to the ancestral castle, only to find himself reviving his grandfather’s work – and a brand-new creature.
The irreplaceable comic cast includes Peter Boyle as the zipper-necked monster, Madeline Kahn as the uptight fiancée (“No tongues!”), Marty Feldman as the wisecracking “Eye-gore,” Cloris Leachman as the intimidating Frau Blücher, Teri Garr as the lascivious Inga, Kenneth Mars as one-armed Inspector Kemp, and none other than Gene Hackman as the blind hermit. The combination of Gerald Hirschfeld’s black-and-white cinematography, Dale Hennesy’s production design (which included Kenneth Strickfaden’s electrical equipment from the original ’30s Frankensteinfilms) and John Morris’s emotional score help make Young Frankenstein one of the most technically accomplished spoofs ever filmed. Mel Brooks himself will join us to celebrate this classic’s 40th anniversary.
1974, 107 minutes, black and white, DCP | Directed by Mel Brooks; written by Gene Wilder and Mel Brooks, based on the novel Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley; with Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr, Kenneth Mars.

Cliché is a bottle of tiny silver sheep to be taken out and counted at bedtime.
Laura Potter employs a wide range of precious and non-precious materials in her work. As a jeweller she seeks to challenge perceptions of jewellery as a purely decorative art and is concerned with the personal relationships that develop between people and their possessions. Her early works, including Cliché, incorporated ideas of health and well being, gradually developing into an exploration of the emotional and psychological support provided by jewelery.
Cliché was part of a series of works acquired from the 1998 Crafts Council exhibition No Picnic, which focused on attitudes towards products and production among contemporary designer makers.

the best tea on the planet
OKAY TEA LESSON TIME. I worked at Teavana for a long time and these teas are called blooming teas! They’re basically white teas, and they come in this little ball. That ball can be rebrewed up to five times. FIVE. TIMES. And that one ball will fill that whole teapot. The three flavors we had each had a different flower in the middle, and really don’t take long to brew, just long enough for that ball to bloom, 2-4 minutes or so for the whole teapot. As a white tea, it’s high in antioxidants, and it’s really good for your immune system. It’s extremely good for detoxing as well, so if you want to detox for health reasons, or if you happen to have a drug test you’re unprepared for, drink these teas. And it’s extremely good for clearing up your skin! After a month of drinking a cup of this a day, your skin will be extremely healthy. It’s light in flavor, so for those of you who don’t like stronger teas, this is perfect.
Plus, it’s really cool to watch bloom.
and now, for tea news.
