PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925) @ 7PM
Set in nineteenth century Paris, Phantom of the Opera tells the story of unknown actress Christine Daae. Christine is the understudy for a famous lyric singer named Carlotta but a mysterious admirer (who sings through the walls to Christine) manages to scare Carlotta out of the role so that Christine can be the star of the show. But the admirer’s work comes with a serious price and Christine quickly finds herself trapped in the catacombs of the opera house with its Phantom and only her suspecting boyfriend to help her escape!
The Invincible Czars’ score for Phantom is mysterious and understated though not as minimal as their score for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It brings all the Czars’ staple instruments – violin, piano, bass guitar, flute and sounds effects. This time, the score features Josh Robins’ 7-string electric guitar with more effects than ever before used in a Czars silent film score.
NOSFERATU (1922) @ 9:30PM
Nosferatu tells the story of Hutter and Ellen, a couple from the village of Wisborg. Hutter travels to Transylvania to sell a piece of property in Wisborg to Count Orlok. Hutter stays in Orlok’s castle only to learn that the Count is a vampire. Orlok purchases a house next to Hutter’s, locks Hutter in the castle and travels to Wisborg. On the way, he manages to possess Hutter’s employer and Ellen and strike the village with an outbreak of the plague. Hutter rushes home to stop him before it’s too late.
The band encourages fans and attendees to dress for the Halloween season at these shows.
