PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE
Baltimore-based performers Bloody Mayhem Theatrical return to the AFI Silver to present an encore screening of Brian De Palma's 1974 rock opera PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE. "More magnificent than you ever dreamed… Quite an attraction."
Disfigured composer Winslow Leach (William Finley) seeks revenge on Swan (Paul Williams), the heartless producer who stole his music, which Leach wrote for Phoenix (Jessica Harper), the woman he loves from afar. Williams' wicked rock music powers this outré musical, which combines elements of "The Phantom of the Opera," "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "Faust." DIR/SCR Brian De Palma; PROD Edward R. Pressman. U.S., 1974, color, 92 min. RATED PG
