A Silent Haunting

Murder and madness abound in this eerie, silent-era classic which tells the tale of a tortured, love-obsessed artist. Starring the legendary Lon Chaney and featuring live accompaniment by the David Drinkell, it’s a spine-chilling Halloween treat!

David Drinkel, from Colchester, England, has been a church organist since the age of twelve.

This will be a very different 'night out' for concert goers at St. Paul’s United Church! A unique cinema experience with a twist is offered when we show one of the greatest silent films ever made, the classic 1925 film version of The Phantom of the Opera, starring Lon Chaney, together with live, improvised organ accompaniment from international recitalist David Drinkell.

This was cinema as it used to be with a musician trying to capture the mood as the silent movie’s images flash across the silver screen.

Produced by Dr. Sharon Pond, “A Silent Haunting” it is a unique event as St. Paul’s United Church transforms itself into the world of silent film and, accompanied by David on our 70-year-old Casavant organ, provides a heady and exhilarating evening’s entertainment.

A Free Will Offering will be received.
