Beneath the sewers of the Paris Opera House dwells a masked figure. He is the Phantom, a hideously disfigured composer whose dream it to turn chorus singer Christine into a diva. Lon Chaney, the "Man of a Thousand Faces", dominates this classic adaptation of the 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux. His ghastly make-up and outrageous performance made this one of the great classics of American silent film.
This screening will feature a new original score performed live by acclaimed soundscapers Minima (“one of the leading bands accompanying silent film in Europe” - Robert Rider, Head of Cinema, Barbican Centre, London).
