Aliens, Independence Day & Jurassic Park Are Getting Their Very Own Live Orchestra Screenings At The Royal Albert Hall
They’ve done Frozen, they’ve done The Godfather and now the Royal Albert Hall is screening even more incredible movies.
Because live orchestras and cinema go hand in hand, Jurassic Park, Aliens and Independence Day will be the latest films to get the RAH treatment – and we’re excited about it.
Announced this week, we’ll be getting a new take on the dinosaur epic in November (yes, we know it’s a bit of a wait, but it’s SO worth it).
The John Williams classic, happening on November 4th and 5th, will be pretty breathtaking alongside some the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
Director of Event at RAH said of the event: “No-one will ever forget the first time they saw Jurassic Park, one of the scariest – yet most magical – movies in cinema history.
“Nor will they forget John Williams’ extraordinary score, which did so much to create that sense of terror and wonder, while giving us a triumphant, overpowering gem of a theme tune.
“This unique presentation of the film, premiering at the Hall on 4 November, will allow audiences to experience the majesty of Jurassic Park in an all-new way, bringing to life that stunning score thanks to the incredible Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, conducted by Ludwig Wicki.
“It promises to be a very special night and a real treat for clever girls – and boys – everywhere.”
But that’s not even it, because Independence Day will be making its way to the historic building even earlier, on September 22nd.
It was the most popular film of its year – second only then to Jurassic Park in the all-time box-office list, so could there have been a better pairing than this?
And even more amazingly, it's now been announced that James Cameron's sci-fi horror classic Aliens will also be headlining the festival - just in time for its 30th anniversary. Amazing.
