Featuring live accompaniment by organist Robert York, we will screen the 1925 silent horror film classic The Phantom of the Opera starring Lon Chaney, Sr. in the title role of the deformed phantom. Robert York, a professional musician, composer, church organist and pianist in concert has performed in numerous venues including the historic Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles. On Halloween evening he will accompany the film screening of The Phantom of the Opera on First Church’s powerful 70-rank Moeller Organ.
First Church is a 1914 historic landmark and is a local leader in social justice and outreach initiatives, as well as being an actively open and affirming church. The church invites the greater Long Beach community to be part of its 10a.m. services every Sunday at the corner of Arts & Justice (3rd St. & Cedar Ave.) in downtown.
