Screening of a special restoration of the 1929 reissue of The Phantom of the Opera inside Hexham Abbey with live organ accompaniment by Jonathan Eyre.

Directed by Rupert Julian, and based on a novel by Gaston Leroux, classic silent horror masterpiece The Phantom of the Opera stars Lon Chaney, in one of his most grotesque performances as the crazed man without a face, who lives in the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, and falls in love with the voice of a young opera singer.

 

Infatuated, he kidnaps her, dragging her to the depths below where she will sing only for him.
