WEST ORANGE, NJ - On Sunday, October 28, 2012, the Friends of Edison National Historic Park will present Frankenstein, a 15 minute silent film released by the Edison Company in 1910. The single print film adaptation was discovered in the mid-70s after being thought forever lost.
The screening will take place at Hat City Kitchen at 1:30 on Sunday, October 28. Tom Meyers, Executive Director of the Fort Lee Film Commission, and John Columbus, Founder and Director of the Black Maria Film Festival, will introduce the film and lead a discussion following the screening.
Hat City Kitchen (http://www.hatcitykitchen.com/) is located at 459 Valley Street, Orange, New Jersey, near the West Orange border. Hat City Kitchen opened in the Valley Arts District of Orange in 2010. Its name evokes the local factories that once employed thousands and supplied haberdashers all over the world. Housing and Neighborhood Development Services Inc.(HANDS), which has rehabilitated scores of homes in the area, owns the restaurant and hopes that its 1890s building will become a bustling performing-arts space.
