BRANDON — It was one of cinema’s first real shockers — a movie so frightening that its original audiences would shriek in terror and even faint. It was “The Phantom of the Opera” (1925), the silent horror film starring legendary actor Lon Chaney, and it will be revived with live music on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m. at Brandon Town Hall and Community Center.
VERGENNES — Bixby Memorial Library in Vergennes will hold a silent auction of framed prints and watercolors by Addison artist Tom Johnson starting Oct. 6 and running through Oct. 20.
