Universal head, Carl Laemmle made this thrilling silent horror film starring the inimitable Lon Chaney as the Phantom of the Opera. Chaney created his most unforgettable visage for this adaptation of the 1910 French novel about a heavenly voiced, physically deformed man who haunts the Paris Opera House. The reveal of the Phantom’s face is one of the most shocking moments in silent film history.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925)
Lon Chaney, Mary Philbin, and Norman Kerry. Directed by Rupert Julian.

Universal head Carl Laemmle was so impressed by the horror films emerging from his homeland of Germany that he began to look for ways to recreate those successes in Hollywood. Ultimately, he would bring filmmakers like Karl Freund to America to work on early sound classics like DRACULA and THE MUMMY, but first he made this thrilling silent horror film starring the inimitable Lon Chaney as the Phantom of the Opera. Known as “The Man of a Thousand Faces,” Chaney created his most unforgettable visage for this adaptation of the 1910 French novel about a heavenly voiced, physically deformed man who haunts the Paris Opera House. The reveal of the Phantom’s face is one of the most shocking moments in silent film history.

This film is part of a double feature. One ticket is good for both features when viewed back-to-back on the same day.
