The Grand Silent Film Classic:

Phantom of the Opera

In addition, the comic duo of Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton will appear in a film short Good night, Nurse with Fatty trapped in a psychiatric hospital and seduced by doctor Buster Keaton.

The Phantom of the Opera (1925) is one of the great silent films and has been
imitated many times since. The story is drawn from a 1910 novel by the French writer Gaston Leroux. The phantom haunts the Paris Opera House and attempts to make the woman he “loves” a star of the opera. The film is famous for Lon Chaney’s ghastly appearance as he creates mayhem and murder in the Opera House.

Our Mission

The Mission of the Sandwich Town Hall Preservation Trust is to support the continued stewardship of the historic Sandwich Town Hall, to assist the Town Manager and staff as a resource for volunteers, events, and programs, to provide, if feasible, funds for special purposes, and to make recommendations for the perpetual protection and enhancement of the Sandwich Town Hall as a major cultural, functional, and historic asset of the Town of Sandwich and the Commonwealth. The beautifully restored Town Hall in Sandwich, Cape Cod’s Oldest Town, features Community Events, Meetings, Movies, Shows, Talks and Tours in a unique and historic setting. Sandwich Town Hall Ceiling Built in 1834, Sandwich Town Hall was restored to its former glory in 2009. The second floor ballroom where movies and theatrical productions are presented is particularly beautiful with its historically accurate ceiling stenciling of tan and brown paint and gold leaf. There’s also a theatrical stage, balcony seating and fully restored historic shuttered windows. The Sandwich Town Hall was granted a Preservation Award for Rehabilitation & Restoration by the Massachusetts Historical Commission in 2011. The Town Hall has been in active use as the seat of Town government for over 175 years. An award-winning rehabilitation and restoration was completed in 2010.
