Description: The venerable revival house screens the classic Universal silent movie, starring Lon Chaney (beneath pounds of makeup, including an uncomfortable rubber hump on his back), Patsy Ruth Miller, Norman Kerry. THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME is not truly a horror film, but its title character has become a part of the genre because of his hideous appearance - a precursor to the Phantom of the Opera, played by Chaney two years later. The film itself is a bit old-fashioned - not a full-fledged classic - but it remains worth seeing because of Chaney's performance.
