Frankenstein, Horizon

Frankenstein, one of 50,000 movies to choose from on movie night aboard NX-01

Movie night was a tradition aboard Enterprise in which the mess hall periodically became a movie hall playing films for the crew. Regular attendees included Doctor Phlox (who went for the Human reactions rather than the movie), T'Pol, Charles Tucker III, and Elizabeth Cutler. (ENT: "Dear Doctor", et al.)

A line from ENT: "Horizon" suggests that Chef was in charge of organising movie night

At first, movie night was every Tuesday. (ENT: "The Catwalk") Later they changed the weekly shedule and shifted the presentation to Monday. (ENT: "Hatchery")

The motion picture library in the ship's database had fifty thousand titles to choose from, which could be divided up into genres such as adventure, comedy, horror, musical, science fiction, thriller, and western. (ENT: "Cold Front", "Cogenitor")

Films known to have been shown on movie night include:

Trip Tucker intended to show Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein on movie night, but it is unknown whether he was successful in doing so. (ENT: "Horizon")

Tucker also forced Phlox to watch The Exorcist, which may have been on a movie night. (ENT: "Doctor's Orders")

When Phlox was running the Enterprise as the rest of the crew was in stasis due to a transdimensional disturbance, he watched The Court Jester alone for movie night. (ENT: "Doctor's Orders")

Although some of the movies seen on movie night were produced by Paramount Pictures, The Day the Earth Stood Still was produced by 20th Century Fox; Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Son of Frankenstein, and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein were produced by Universal Pictures; and The Exorcist was produced by Warner Bros. Pictures.
