The International Museum of Art continues its classic movie series this weekend with the 1943 Technicolor masterpiece, 'Phantom of the Opera'. This story has been remade a million times by Hollywood, but this is a real classic.

The Phantom, played by Claude Raines, falls in love with Christine DuBois, a singer in the opera. She is also loved by another singer in the opera and a police inspector. The Phantom works behind the scenes to help Christine's career, but goes a little crazy and murders a music publisher. His face gets burned and scarred with acid, and he soon begins to skulk around the opera house, about the same time that odd crimes begin happening.

The Phantom's face mask and his legendary ability to elude the police will have you on the edge of your seat. The music and the costumes in all their Technicolor glory will have you swooning. I won't tell you what happens at the end - you'll have to go see this amazing movie.

The International Museum of Art has concessions before the movie, and they are ridiculously inexpensive, so grab some popcorn, a soda, and some candy for a couple of bucks, lean back in your chair, and enjoy 'The Phantom of the Opera'.
