Decades old organ comes alive this weekend at L-P

Posted by wlpo on October 19, 2015

There’s something spooky about an old black and white movie. You can watch the original silent film version of “Phantom of the Opera” during a unique viewing at LP High School’s Matthiessen Auditorium.

As it the old days, accompanying the film will be a live performance using the auditorium’s rare Aeolian pipe organ. The viewing is Saturday night starting with a 6 o’clock presentation about the organ and then the film featuring live music at 6:30.

Admission is free but donations are appreciated to help with the ongoing restoration of the decades old organ.
