Description: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science wraps up A Monstrous Centennial: Universal’s Legacy of Horror – a month-long series of Halloween screenings and an exhibition of art work from classic Universal Studios horror films – with the 1925 black-and-white silent classic, starring Lon Chaney as the disfigured Phantom. The Phantom of the Opera is old-fashioned and creaky by today’s standards, but Chaney reigns supreme; the unmasking scene is justifiably famous, and the film revs up for a rousing finale.

Note: The Phantom of the Opera will be screening earlier in the week at the Old Town Music Hall, with live organ accompaniment.
