3 Silent Spooky Apparitions this October

Phantom of the Opera PosterThree Itinerant Shows are planned for October at which I will hand-crank my 1909 Power’s Cameragraph Model 6 Moving Picture Machine, with other visual and musical delights provided by my colleagues. I hope to see you there. —Joe Rinaudo

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2016 at 7:30 PM
HANFORD FOX THEATRE
Han­ford, Cal­i­for­nia

The Phantom of the Opera

The Phan­tom Of The Opera” will be screened at the his­toric Han­ford Fox The­atre. Built in 1929, the Han­ford Fox boasts a 12 rank Wurl­itzer pipe organ to be played by Dean Mora. The film is the only 35mm print in exis­tence that tells the com­plete sto­ry (as orig­i­nal­ly intend­ed) by com­bin­ing the 1929 release and the 16mm show at home ver­sions (blown up to 35mm). It also now has all of the orig­i­nal col­or sequences restored as they were seen in 1925. Orig­i­nal nar­ra­tive and spo­ken inter-titles (about 68) have been restored as well as the pro­logue titles that describe the begin­nings of the Phan­tom and his con­nec­tion to the Paris Opera House. Plus see the orig­i­nal Tech­ni­col­or end­ing as well! Since this print is drawn from the orig­i­nal 1925 and the 1929 (sound speed) ver­sions, hand crank­ing will allow you to see, for the first time, the film pre­sent­ed at the prop­er speeds. Gary Gib­son will present a glass lantern slide show dur­ing all reel changes.

The Phantom of the Opera & Habeas Corpus

Original Posters from Universal and MGM

Famous Play­ers Orchestra’s “Hal­loween Silent Film Spook­tac­u­lar” is com­ing up. This will be a very spe­cial show you won’t want to miss.

The main fea­ture on the pro­gram will be a one-of-a-kind restored ver­sion of the 1925 hor­ror clas­sic,“The Phan­tom of the Opera” star­ring the “man of a thou­sand faces,” Lon Chaney. This restored print of “Phan­tom” can­not be seen any­where else, and is the only 35mm print in exis­tence which tells the com­plete sto­ry as orig­i­nal­ly intend­ed. All of the orig­i­nal col­or sequences have been restored as they were seen in 1925 under Joe Rinaudo’s direc­tion and super­vi­sion. Orig­i­nal nar­ra­tive and spo­ken inter-titles (about 68) have been restored by Chaz DeS­i­mone, as well as the pro­logue titles that describe the begin­nings of the Phan­tom and his con­nec­tion to the Paris Opera House. Plus, see the orig­i­nal Tech­ni­col­or end­ing as well! Since this print is drawn from the orig­i­nal 1925 and the 1929 (sound speed) ver­sions, hand crank­ing will allow you to see, for the first time, the film pre­sent­ed at the prop­er speeds. “The Phan­tom of the Opera” will be pre­sent­ed with a live musi­cal score accom­pa­nied by Scott Lasky on the pipe organ.

Also includ­ed on the pro­gram will be the 1928 two reel Lau­rel & Hardy com­e­dy “Habeas Cor­pus.”  

Not a trick, just a very spe­cial treat:

Famous Play­ers Orches­tra will per­form a live score for “Habeas Cor­pus.” This is the first time that the Famous Play­ers Orches­tra will play pub­licly for a film. Please attend and sup­port this non prof­it orga­ni­za­tion. The Famous Play­ers Orchestra’s mis­sion is to pre­serve and per­form authen­tic motion pic­ture music as it was intend­ed to be used with silent film pre­sen­ta­tions.

Both films will be shown in 35mm, pro­ject­ed by Joe Rin­au­do on an orig­i­nal hand-cranked Power’s 1909 Cam­er­a­graph Mod­el 6 Motion Pic­ture Machine.

Glass lantern slides will be pre­sent­ed dur­ing reel changes by Mr. Shane Glan­der.

Your Mas­ter of Cer­e­monies will be Stan Taffel. Show­time is at 7pm and the doors open at 6:15pm. Admis­sion is a sug­gest­ed dona­tion of $10.00. Tick­ets may be pur­chased at the door approx­i­mate­ly one hour before show­time, or you may buy them in advance secure­ly online here:
