Saturday, October 21 at 7:30pm, come to the beautiful Frauenthal Theater for the classic silent film, “Phantom of the Opera” accompanied by organist Dale Zieger on the mighty Barton Organ!
In this silent horror classic, aspiring young opera singer Christine Daae (Mary Philbin) discovers that she has a mysterious admirer intent on helping her become a lead performer. This enigmatic masked presence is Erik, also known as the Phantom (Lon Chaney), a horribly disfigured recluse who lives underneath the Paris Opera House. When the Phantom takes Christine prisoner and demands her devotion and affection, her suitor, Vicomte Raoul de Chagny (Norman Kerry), sets out to rescue her.
