On Friday, Oct. 9, the majestic movie palace welcomes back nationally renowned theater organist Steven Ball, who last played Lon Chaney’s masked masterpiece at Tampa Theatre in 2015 to a sold-out crowd, and most recently joined us in May for our first-ever live-streamed silent film.

Known as "The Man of a Thousand Faces," Lon Chaney was famous was famous for doing his own elaborate makeup. Likewise, Steven Ball will bring Chaney’s character back to cinematic life with a musical score of his own composition, performed LIVE with an intermission, just as it would have been when the film first opened. Patrons will be treated to a unique view of the organ, courtesy of an over-the-shoulder camera capturing all of Ball’s wizardry on the Might Wurlitzer during the streaming feature.

And to make the experience feel just a little bit more like “being there,” the Theatre will host a Popcorn Pickup under the historic marquee at 711 N. Franklin Street from 4-7pm. Orders can be placed online for popcorn, fountain sodas, and other cinematic snacks through the Theatre’s new concessions app Noble.
