The Sound of Music (U)

Enjoy a glorious new 70mm print of one of the most popular musicals ever made.

In the year of its release, The Sound of Music was a phenomenon, running continuously in some cinemas for over a year. Today it is still regarded as a masterpiece for its great story, uplifting mood and some of the most well-known songs in film history.

In this brand new 70mm print of the film that defined Julie Andrews as a star, you can immerse yourself in fantastic scenery, a great love story and a tense escape plot—all (loosely) based on Maria von Trapp’s memoirs. This is Hollywood film-making at its best.

This film is screening as part of Women in Widescreen.

Introduction

This screening will be introduced by broadcaster and journalist Anna Smith.
