"It's Alive!" is a line that will live on forever as we recall the first moments of life for cinema’s most recognized and beloved monster of all time. Karloff's sympathetic performance evokes fear while also breaking our hearts. This film made him a huge star after years of working as an unknown actor. Frankenstein is nothing less than a classic!

The Phantom of the Opera

• Silent with Live Accompaniment on the Mighty Wurlitzer • Old Town Music Hall celebrates its premiere partnership with Retroformat Silent Films, with two screenings of Lon Chaney starring in the 1925 version of The Phantom of the Opera.
