As part of a multimillion-dollar face lift of several neglected but once-ornate movie theaters along downtown Los Angeles’ Broadway, the Orpheum Theatre stage will be re-lit next month for the first time in almost 40 years. The 1926 screen classic “Phantom of the Opera” starring Lon Chaney will be shown at the Orpheum on May 11. Korla Pandit, 1950s television star, will accompany the film on the theater’s Wurlitzer organ.
