Halloween Silent Movie: The Phantom of the Opera @ Historic Ironwood Theatre
Oct 30 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join the Historic Ironwood Theatre on Saturday, October 30, for the annual Halloween Silent Movie!  This year it’s The Phantom of the Opera. ‘Phantom’ is a 1925 American silent musical horror film adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel Le Fantôme de l’Opéra, directed by Rupert Julian and starring Lon Chaney in the title role of the deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to make the woman he loves a star. The film remains most famous for Chaney’s ghastly, self-devised make-up, which was kept a studio secret until the film’s premiere.

The movie will be accompanied on our Barton organ by Andrew Rogers from Ann Arbor’s Michigan Theatre, who will play his original score.
