Young Frankenstein (Brooks, 1974): Prince Charles Cinema, 6pm

This film is part of the Mel Brooks season - further details here.

Chicago Reader review:
More about the myth of Karloff than the monster, this Mel Brooks pastiche (1974) is probably his best early film: within limits, it has unity, pace, and even a dramatic interest of sorts. Its satisfying look, which Brooks has yet to equal, is probably due to Dale Hennesy’s production design and Gerald Hirschfeld’s polished black-and-white cinematography.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
