Tyne Theatre & Opera House in association with Whitley Bay Film Festival: THE CINEMA YEARS
We invite you to enjoy classic films related to the Stoll Picture Theatre over three action-packed days! Feature films will be accompanied with animation workshops, scintillating talks about film, dainty teas and an opportunity for those with memories of the Stoll to recall those days. We will also be presenting screenings of some of the first films shown at the establishment, including archive material and a range of exhibits.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925) With Original Live Soundtrack by Brendan Murphy and The Mediators – Film screening in the auditorium
Doors open 8.00pm, starts 8.30pm
Directed by Rupert Julian (uncredited), Edward Sedgwick, Lon Chaney Senior, Ernst Laemmle.
We are proud to bring the original film version of the Phantom to the Tyne Theatre & Opera House’s 150th year celebrations. This classic of the silent age is presented with an original soundtrack performed by Newcastle based master percussionist Brendan Murphy and analogue synthesiser experts The Mediators. Lon Chaney plays the Ghastly Phantom who will stop at nothing to aid up and coming starlet Christine Daaé’s path to the top of the bill. His obsessional love wreaks a trail of terror and fear for the Paris Opera House’s players and audience.
With special thanks to Peter Cumiskey
Archive Footage will be playing in the Bistro and Coffee Lounge throughout the day. (No tickets required)Back to Events
