REVIEWS:

“Anyone who has been lucky enough to hear Mr. Krasinski in performance knows his skill at presenting the essence and power of a film.”

“It was remarkable and seamless, and yes—no modern action movie could outdo it.

In fact, I’ll go so far as to say it was live theater…It was as if Krasinski became one with the elements”

“During the applause and encores, you gestured to the hall’s organ – I’m sure it was, in turn, bowing to you in appreciation for having being played so dexterously”

Silent movie with live music

One of the scariest and most influential horror films of all time, this 1925 silent film classic features Lon Chaney in the title role as the deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to force the management to make the woman he loves a star. A gorgeous new print of the film has been carefully restored to the intricate color scheme of the original release. The Alloy Orchestra performs a new score on the Shalin Liu stage for this “ghoulish” Halloween screening.
