Radio City Music Hall To Host a Special Screening of “The Two Towers”
NEW YORK, NY – No, it’s not a world premiere, or an exclusive invite-only screening. Instead, it is a RARE opportunity for the general public to experience a full-length feature film presentation at Radio City Music Hall, on a HUGE 60-foot screen. As if that’s not enough for any cinemaphile, here’s the finishing touch: it comes with LIVE musical accompaniment provided by a world-class orchestra.
Following up on last year’s performance of “The Fellowship of the Ring”, the spectacular Art Deco palace of stage and screen will present “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” Live to Film on Friday & Saturday, 8 & 9 October 2010 at 7:30 p.m. In these special performances, Peter Jackson’s award-winning motion picture will be shown, while on stage Howard Shore’s entire original score is performed live in careful synchronization with the picture. Musical maestro Ludwig Wicki will lead Switzerland’s 21st Century Orchestra, the Collegiate Chorale, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.
Ticket prices range from $59.00 to $150.00. This elaborate movie presentation will use digital projection and include an intermission.
Doug Adams, author of “The Music of The Lord of the Rings Films: A Comprehensive Account of Howard Shore’s Scores” (released 5 October 2010), provides the program notes, available here.
