REEL ODDITIES: PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (1974)

February 1, 8, 15, 22, 2023
REEL ODDITIES:
PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (1974)
You overwhelmingly voted for Brian De Palma’s classic – and here it is! In this rock opera hybrid of Phantom of the Opera and Faust, fledgling singer-songwriter Winslow Leach finds himself double-crossed by the nefarious music producer Swan. Hear Paul Williams’ songs as they were intended to be heard: over theater speakers!
Dir: Brian De Palma / 1974 / US / 91 min

Playing with Short Film:
Smells Like American Spirits (2019)

An aspiring musician from Olympia ventures out for the day in preparation for his first solo show ever.
Dir: Isabella King / 2019 / US / 6 min

“Is this based on Fleetwood Mac’s Bob Welch? I thought Paul Williams was Bud Cort for the first forty-five minutes of the movie.” – Rob Patrick, Olympia Film Society

“You practically get a kinetic charge from the breakneck wit [De Palma] put into Phantom; it isn’t just that the picture has vitality but that one can feel the tremendous kick the director got out of making it.” – Pauline Kael

SCREENING: WED 2/1 7PM; WED 2/8 7PM; WED 2/15 7PM; WED 2/22 7PM

Patrons, performers, staff, and volunteers are no longer required to wear masks or show proof of vaccination. The threat of covid, seasonal flu, and respiratory viruses are still out there. OFS will continue to provide masks (while supplies last – we have tons), surface and hand sanitizer, and regular air filtration system maintenance. We encourage mask-wearing at concerts and indoor gatherings and keep snacking and drinking in seating areas only.

If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home to avoid spreading COVID-19 to others. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you call out for your volunteer, stay at home, and come back when you feel better to minimize the spread and to help keep others at the theater healthy and keep our operations going.
