Classic silent flick 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' will be shown at St. James Church

posted by Billie Owens in Announcements.

St. James Episcopal Church presents a special holiday Spooktacular by showing the silent movie classic "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." Charles Bradley will play the organ in concert with the movie.

It starts at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 27, at the church, located at 405 E. Main St. in the City of Batavia.

Tickets are $10 and the money will benefit the bell tower restoration fund.

The 1923 American film released by Universal Pictures is based on the novel by Victor Hugo. It centers on the tortured life of Quasimodo, a deformed, deaf and half-blind bell-ringer at the Cathedral of Norte Dame in Paris in the 15th Century.

It is known for its spectacular sets and the performance and makeup artistry of Lon Chaney Sr. He was a well-known actor but his portrayal of Quasimodo made him a star and his grotesque characterization set a new benchmark for film makeup. Patsy Ruth Miller plays the lovely Esmeralda.

Phone 343-6802 for tickets or other information. Tickets may also be purchased at the door.
