Wednesday, October 22 at 7:30 pm, Doors Open at 6:30 pm – Opening Act: Jordie Lane 7:30 – 8:00 p.m.; Headlining Act: The Stray Birds immediately following Opener. Drawing upon the richness of American folk music traditions, the signature power of The StrayBirds sound lies in outstanding songwriting spun with a stirring subtlety and grace. The Stray Birds were born of a compelling collaboration between two unique writers and vocalists — the pure, luxurious voice of Maya de Vitry and Oliver Craven’s richness of tone and depth of delivery. Grounding their sound is the unshakeable groove of bassist Charles Muench. Their full-length debut, The Stray Birds, was lauded by radio stations and listeners across the country and named to the Top 10 Folk/Americana Releases of 2012 by NPR. Passionate live performances led to appearances on NPR’s Mountain Stage, the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the Kerrville Folk Festival, and the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Adults: $10, Seniors 62+ and Subscribers: $8, Youth 18 and Under: $5, Bucknell Employees and Retirees (limit 2) $5, Bucknell Students: FREE!, Non-Bucknell College Students (limit 2): $5. http://www.Bucknell.edu/BoxOffice or 570-577-1000.

FRANKENSTEIN - Director: James Whale, U.S. (1931) (NR) 71 min. Horror. Stars: Boris Karloff, Mae Clarke, John Boles. For this classic Universal horror film, Whale took total control over both the screenplay and the production design to plumb the subject’s visual possibilities for the macabre.

Rather, Frankenstein is wholly sympathetic, his fairytale-like birth and demise portrayed by Karloff with chilling eloquence. Selected in 1991 for the United States National Film Registry. Introduced by Rebecca Willoughby, Visiting Assistant Professor in Bucknell’s English department. Part of the BU Tuesday Evening Film/Media Studies Series. $2 admission
