AUBURN — Tuesdays in October will be a time of terror in a good way at the Auburn Public Library.
The library has announced its Tuesday afternoon classic horror film lineup for the month. All of the Tuesday of Terror programs will take place at 1 p.m. in the library’s Androscoggin Community Room, 49 Spring St.
On Oct. 10, the Tuesdays of Terror film series kicks off with the 1962 classic, “Phantom of the Opera.” Terror strikes the London Opera House as a new opera is disrupted by the actions of a deformed specter of the show’s past, who has an obsession with one of the production’s chorus girls.
The series will continue on Oct. 17 with the 1959 classic, “The Hound of Baskervilles.” When a nobleman is threatened by a family curse on his newly inherited estate, detective Sherlock Holmes is hired to investigate.
The series will conclude Oct. 24 with the 1942 film, “The Ghost of Frankenstein.” In the film, Ygor and Frankenstein’s monster flee from Castle Frankenstein, taking refuge in the home of one of the mad scientist’s sons. Their attempts at fashioning a more peaceful monster backfire, however, triggering another rampage. This was the fourth Frankenstein film produced by Universal Studios.
