A masterpiece of horror starring the man of 1,000 faces, Lon Chaney, featuring a terrifying live score by Jeff Rapsis! 

At the Opera of Paris, a mysterious phantom threatens a famous lyric singer, Carlotta and thus forces her to give up her role (Marguerite in Faust) for unknown Christine Daae. Christine meets this phantom (a masked man) in the catacombs, where he lives. What's his goal? What's his secret?

A forerunner of the American horror film, and one of the most lavish productions of the silent cinema era, The Phantom of the Opera has inspired countless remakes and imitations. But none of it's successors can rival the mesmerizing blend of romance and mystery that haunts every frame of the Lon Chaney original.

Specific talents include an ability to place coins on either elbow and then catch them in the same hand before they hit the floor, though sometimes he misses and the coins go flying just everywhere.
