Join us for another edition of our late night March series, Frida After Dark, as we present a film from acclaimed director Brian De Palma and Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Paul Williams: Phantom of the Paradise!
After record producer Swan (Paul Williams), owner of popular concert venue The Paradise, steals the music of songwriter Winslow Leach (William Finley) and gives it to one of his bands, he frames Winslow and ruins his life, setting in motion a chain of events which leads to Winslow becoming horribly disfigured. Eager for revenge and desperate to save singer Phoenix (Jessica Harper) from a terrible fate, Winslow dons a costume and becomes the Phantom, haunting the rafters of The Paradise and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike.
A glamtastic retelling of The Phantom of the Opera, Phantom of the Paradise is a rocking good time as much it is a memorable Faustian tale.
Phantom of the Paradise screens starting Friday, March 17th.
