A long-standing and very popular annual Halloween tradition, Rob Landes reprises his specially-created and totally-improvised musical score for the showing of Lon Chaney's 1925 silent film masterpiece - The Phantom of the Opera. With his transformative and highly secretive make-up techniques, in addition to his exceptional acting abilities, Lon Chaney created iconic big-screen characters that made him one of early Hollywood's biggest box office stars! Come in costume… if you dare! This performance is sponsored in part by The Daily News.
