The Sound of Music
Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Robert Wise. 1965, 174 mins. 70mm. With Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer. One of the most beloved musicals of all time, and the #1 box office hit of the 1960s, The Sound of Music was restored in a sparkling new 70mm print in 2015, for the film’s 50 anniversary. Robert Wise’s sumptuous adaptation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway show is one of cinema’s greatest musical extravaganzas. Julie Andrews gives an iconic performance as a novice nun whose life changes when sent to care for the bratty children of a handsome military captain (Plummer) on the heels of World War II. The Sound of Music bursts with unforgettable songs and glorious CinemaScope images shot on location in Salzburg, Austria.
