Shawn MacGibbon, also known as The Phantom, is the titular main antagonist of the 2000 Disney Channel Original Movie, The Phantom of the Megaplex.
He is the movie theater manager, who is constantly worried about his job, but disguises himself as The Phantom, causing trouble throughout the theater, to get revenge on those who put him down.
He was portrayed by Rich Hutchman.
He is a movie theater manager who longs to meet his idol, a movie director who is showing one of his horror movies at the theater. Legends of a movie-goer trapped in the building where the megaplex now stands have been told for decades, with many believing that the Phantom still haunts the megaplex to this day. Shawn takes this opportunity to enter the guise of the Phantom to torment movie-goers on the premiere night of the new movie, Midnight Mayhem.
MacGibbon also attempts to frame Movie Mason, a very old movie goer who is respected by his employees but disliked by Shawn. The phantom sets off a series of pranks in each theater related to the movie being shown; For example, he places a giant fan in a room showing a hurricane disaster movie, ultimately he plots an attack on the premiere of Midnight Mayhem using giant monster balloons to trap movie-goers into the room where it is being shown.
Before this can happen, Pete and his younger brothers finally confront the Phantom on the roof of the megaplex. The Ghost can temporarily subdue them. The three of them are able to escape and after Pete destroys one of the balloons, Pete chases after the Ghost. After the duel, the Phantom unmasks himself and reveals himself to be Shawn, who claims that the only reason he did all this was because he felt underappreciated by many of the characters, especially the megaplex's owner Wolfgang Nedermayer. He is fired, but not arrested. Nedermayer also warns him to never go to any movie theater again. He is ultimately shunned by many, but is later seen making a deal with his favorite horror movie director to create a movie about his story.
