As one of only 11 EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) winners, entertainment juggernaut Mel Brooks has been making audiences laugh out loud and pee their pants for more than 60 years. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who’s not a fan of Brooks’ work (after all, the man did give us three of the top 15 funniest movies, according to American Film Institute’s 100 Years … 100 Laughs list). If you do find a non-fan, that person probably hasn’t seen Young Frankenstein. Beloved by critics and filmgoers alike, Young Frankenstein’s skewering of the James Whale-directed original is one of the best parodies in film history, so whether you’re a long-time fan or someone who’s never had a chance to see the movie before, we’re thinking you need to get yourself to the Texas Theatre (231 W. Jefferson Blvd.) Thursday night for a special chance to sample the sweet mystery of life in its 35mm glory. Tickets are $9.25, $8 for members, students, seniors and children. Call 214-948-1546 or visit thetexastheatre.com.
