Our next film, on Tuesday 24 October at 19:45, is a special event. The Phantom of the Opera will be accompanied by live music from the group Minima, who last year gave us their version of Hitchcock’s The Lodger.
The Phantom of the Opera has been made and remade several times in film history. This is the 1925 silent version with Lon Chaney in the title role. It includes elaborate sets and costumes, colour tinting and even a key scene shot in an early version of Technicolor.
Minima are an acclaimed four-piece band, formed in 2006, who specialise in silent film accompaniment. They have toured across the country and appeared at London’s Barbican theatre.
The event is included in the normal membership fee.
