This time the monster has a mate in the shape of Elsa Lanchester, and the resulting film is widely considered one of the greatest sequels of all time.

Black and white cinematography has a delicate magic all its own, especially when experienced on the big screen, and this double-bill is a celebration of its suggestive power.

His Protected content fantasia La Belle Et La Bête may be one of the most famous and influential films of its kind, a re-telling of the famous fairytale about a young girl who sets out to rescue her father from a Gothic castle only to become enchanted by the prideful Beast who lives there. With its many magical moments, all created using camera tricks and hand-crafted special-effects that still evoke awe and wonder today, Cocteau's film perfectly conjures the feel of being enmeshed in a waking dream.
