for my birthday

we went to see a showing of the 1925 silent movie version of phantom of the opera. it was incredible. so amazing. i was shocked. the music and sets were so beautiful and the acting was wonderful. i'm really glad we went. it was a huge theater on the riverwalk and there were only 8 people in the audience including us. it felt like a private screening. i adored the scenes with the corps de ballet rustling about in there ethereal tutus. also the black and white film was tinted pint in parts for the ball scene, which was gorgeous. i tried but couldn't find any pictures of those scenes on the web.
