Unfortunately, due to illness, Jonathan Eyre is no longer able to provide a live organ accompaniment at our Tyne Valley Film Festival screening of The Phantom of the Opera at Hexham Abbey this Saturday (19th March).

The screening will still be going ahead, but with a pre-recorded score created specifically for The Phantom of the Opera, instead of the intended live organ score.

We hope you will all still come along to this unique and exciting event but understand if you no longer wish to do so.

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.
