Sing-along “Sound of Music” to play 498 theaters on October 19 & 26
CENTENNIAL, CO — In celebration of the forty-fifth anniversary of the original release of “The Sound of Music,” the film will be presented in almost five hundred theaters for two evenings in October in a high definition, digitally-restored version. The showings are being coordinated by NCM Fathom events and several other sponsors.
Presented by NCM Fathom, Rodgers & Hammerstein: An Imagem Company and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, in association with Sony Music Entertainment, Trapp Family Lodge, South Pacific Tour and Austrian Tourism, The Sound of Music Sing-Along Event will also include the exclusive “I’ll Sing Once More: The Sound of Music Today” featurette. Audiences will be whisked back to Salzburg for a travelogue where the classic was filmed, and be treated to contemporary and surprising tributes ranging from modern dance and rock band salutes to an all-marionette version.
