The Mark of Zorro (1920)

The Prescott Film Festival • Yavapai College, Prescott Arizona • 5:30 pm • $25, or $45 with wine tasting

Setting the stage for the next hundred years of American pop culture, Douglas Fairbanks poses as an ineffectual fop while secretly fighting for justice as a masked "superhero" in early California. The dashing stunts, romance, horseback riding, and swordfighting are expected; but perhaps not the large doses of comedy. A ground-breaking film in its era, The Mark of Zorro stands up brilliantly today as a remarkably entertaining movie.

This screening is the closing film of the Prescott Film Festival, which runs from October 14-17, 2021.

Purchase tickets at the Yavapai College website.

The Phantom of the Opera (1925)

The Longmont Museum • Longmont, Colorado

Lon Chaney plays the deranged genius who coaches and controls an opera star from secret passages in the Paris Opera. This classic horror film delivers atmosphere galore, including a couple of striking scenes filmed in Technicolor. Mont Alto's score incorporates music from Faust, the opera being presented in the film.

Tickets available at the Longmont Museum web site.
