October is here and that means it is almost time for ghouls, ghosts, and goblins. Pratt’s free family flicks series is celebrating by bringing you not one, but two spooky flicks: Frankenweenie and Hotel Transylvania. First up is Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie.

FrankenweenCome down to the Enoch Pratt Free Central Library at 2pm this Saturday, October 5th, to watch Frankenweenie, an animated full-length feature. This screening is part of the library’s Free Family Flicks series, the once-a-month film series for the whole family that shows in Wheeler Auditorium.

This film is a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor's fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new "leash on life" can be monstrous.

Directed by Tim Burton, 2012, 87 minutes, Rated PG, Walt Disney Pictures. Animated feature with the voices of Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, and Martin Short.
