6PM - Svengali (1931) Directed by Archie Mayo, approx. 78m
George DuMaurier’s supernatural tale of the mysterious Parisian artist who uses his hypnotic powers to transform his untalented model, Trilby, into the singing sensation of Europe, but cannot command her love was the basis for this Pre-Code classic. And who better to play the title role than the one and only John Barrymore? His performance is supported tremendously by the stunning visual effects and overall expressionist look of the film, courtesy of Art Director Anton Grot and Cinematographer Barney McGill, both of whom were Oscar-nominated for their work. Watch ‘Svengali’ and be amazed! Approx. 78m View a clip.
8PM - The Phantom Of The Opera (1925) Directed by Rupert Julian, approx. 78m
Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel, with its crowd-pleasing blend of suspense, romance, and gothic horror, has been filmed numerous times. Yet, for all the subsequent remakes, this original silent gem, starring the great Lon Chaney, Sr., remains the definitive version.
Tony Rayns of “Time Out” put it perfectly: “…Chaney’s best ever phantom, his face scarred to hell by acid, unmasked at the organ by the timorous heroine; the phantom stopping a costume ball when he appears as the Red Death; the phantom shrouded in the most romantic cape ever seen, perched on top of the statue of Apollo to eavesdrop on the lovers. And the sustained crescendo of the end is still unrivalled.”
Presented with a synchronized score of –what else?- organ music! View a trailer.

Come for the pie, stay for the slice...
In the summer of 2013, a theater troupe from Albuquerque, New Mexico decided to produce William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Since most of the play takes place in a forest, the troupe decided to rehearse in the woods. They rented a lovely cabin in the middle of the Sandia Mountains. A documentary team joined them in order to capture the rehearsal process on film. They ordered pizza. It was delivered… and then something went horribly wrong. The theater troupe never returned. No one had any idea what happened to them... until now!
