Roger Ebert called them “the best in the world at accompanying silent films,” and we call them festival regulars we love to welcome back to Traverse City every year. In 2013, the incomparable musical stylings of the Alloy Orchestra will accompany Rupert Julian’s classic starring the man of 1,000 faces, Lon Chaney. This early classic of the horror genre has been horrifying and fascinating audiences for almost 90 years. We are happy to present “Phantom” on a lovingly restored, hand-tinted 35mm print.
