Tonight's film at Retrofantasma: The Phantom of the Paradise, a 1974 rock opera adaptation of Faust starring Paul Williams as a Mephistophelean hobbit music producer, and Jessica Harper. Second time I've seen it on the big screen: the first was in mid-2011 at Cinema Overdrive. Much fun. Now to continue the current novel, Clive Barker's The Damnation Game. Last week was Orpheus, this week it's Faust. It's a theme.

Tonight's movie either had a blown center channel speaker or was a filthy print: given the picture was in excellent shape and only the center channel produced horrible crackling static whenever sound was directed to it (the rest of the system sounded fine) I suspect mechanical issues. The cellophane-crackling static every time someone on film spoke was bad enough it gave me a headache. Luckily the Piedmont has a fine headache cure called a Sazerac.
(A friend who stayed reported to me afterward that the second film of the double bill manifested the same crackling noise in the center channel, indicating a hardware problem or possibly operator error - perhaps the projectionist is new?)
