The Phantom of the Opera (Live Piano by Jeff Rapsis)
Redfern Arts Center - Putnam Theater
Thursday, October 24, 2013 · 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Renowned pianist, Jeff Rapsis, will perform live musical accompaniment to the classic silent 1925 horror masterpiece, The Phantom of the Opera. This event will kickoff our annual Halloween Horror Fest.
Lon Chaney stars as Erik, the phantom, in what is probably his most famous - and certainly his most horrifying - role.
Produced by Universal, the film was shot in 1923 and shelved for nearly two years, and was subjected to intensive studio tinkering. While many expected a disaster, the film turned out to be a rousing success. It was both the stepping off point for Chaney's run as a superstar at MGM, and the prototype for the horror film cycle at Universal in the 1930s. © rottentomatoes.com
