Phantom of the Opera
Fast-moving and exciting, this adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera was a truly shocking experience for cinema-goers in 1925. Famous for the ghastly make-up and outrageous performance of Lon Chaney, the "Man of a Thousand Faces", it also features a full Technicolor sequence as the Phantom appears at a Masked Ball. The electrifying post-rock live score by Minima captures the horror of the story but also finds pathos and romance - drums, bass, guitar and cello follow the hideously disfigured Phantom into his subterranean nightmare world. Prepare to open your eyes and ears to the daring collision of image and sound as Minima's unique sonic palette breathes new life into one of the great classics of American silent film.
