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.


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

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.
