A forerunner of the American horror film and one of the most lavish productions of silent cinema, The Phantom of the Opera has inspired countless remakes and imitations. But none of its successors can rival the mesmerizing blend of romance and mystery that haunts every frame of the Lon Chaney original. This edition presents the 1929 theatrical version restored from archival 35mm elements and is highlighted by the Technicolor Bal Masque sequence in which the Phantom interrupts the revelry wearing the scarlet robes of the Red Death, as well as meticulously hand-colored sequences. Organist Dennis James masterfully accompanies the film on the Grande Page pipe organ.
