Pre-Festival Launch: Phantom of the Opera (1925)About the Film
Accompanied by the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra
For the second year in a row, NFF and the Dreamland Film & Performing Arts Center are proud to present a spectacular pre-Festival launch event. This year, thrills and chills abound with a screening of Rupert Julian’s 1925 classic, The Phantom of the Opera, with live musical accompaniment by the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra. Conducted by three-time Emmy® nominee Sheldon Mirowitz (Outside Providence, Missing America), this year’s performance features a rich new score that will enthrall the audience.
After its 1925 premiere, The Phantom of the Opera took the country by storm, solidifying a place in the industry for suspenseful storytelling. The film, starring genre legend Lon Chaney, tells the story of an up-and-coming young actress and the deformed and obsessive fan who will stop at nothing to make her a star.
Tickets may be purchased in person at the Dreamland Box Office.
