Terror in the Aisles presents an evening of classic cinema with a screening of silent film The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) starring the great Lon Chaney! Jay Warren (Silent Film Society of Chicago) will perform live organ accompaniment, making the viewing experience all the more rewarding.
Adapted from Victor Hugo's 1831 novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame tells the story of Quasimodo, a hunchback played by horror legend Lon Chaney (who was quite at ease acting in silent films, having learned to be expressive early in life due to having two deaf parents), who is a deaf, half-blind bell-ringer for the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. His master forces him to kidnap a gypsy girl, causing him to be publicly punished. She softens towards him and he chooses to help save her, being hurt in the process. A timeless tale of love, revenge, forgiveness, and sacrifice.
See this fantastic film on Thursday, April 12th! Located at the Davis Theater, 4614 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60625. Doors open at 7pm. Show begins at 8:00pm. All ages. Handicapped accessible. Vendors, free posters, and a charity auction for Vitalbridges.org.
