Audience Response: Minima & The Phantom of the Opera 1925

The audience gave the Minima presentation of the 1925 ‘Phantom of the Opera‘ a score of 94%

Here are their comments:

  • Music made the film.
  • Excellent music suited to the themes, however could perhaps have had a lighter approach to the more comedic scenes.
  • Minima’s music was excellent, though not always suited to the themes of the work. Audio quality suffered, something was rattling in the deepest bass in a very distracting fashion. For older works an accompanying info sheet would be helpful.
  • An interesting combination of instruments – hypnotic minimalism! What a pity that the level of volume was such that it was distorted and hit resonance with the floor, the furniture and my rib cage. A few decibels less would have enhanced the film instead of competing with it. An excellent attempt chaps; but far too loud. OK for a rave though.
  • A fantastic evening! Superb music + an excellent film.
  • Outstanding on all levels – The music complemented the film perfectly – the unmasking of the Phantom was particularly powerful as was the final sequence. Please bring Minima back!
  • Excellent performance by Minima. A shame that the music was too loud and that it caused a horrible and distracting rattle within the theatre.
  • Music was great!
  • Really enjoyed doing something different for the night!
  • Very good performance. Not what I expected.
  • What a brilliant (revived) idea! More please.
  • First time I’ve seen this cinema classic – greatly enhanced by the live music.
  • Amazing stamina of musicians. Brilliant score.
