The Festival of Film returns to the Royal Albert Hall this autumn to celebrate the magic of the big screen. Experience real time live scores whilst enjoying your favourite film. We’ve picked a few upcoming gems to get your started…
This is the very first time that an entire Bond score will be performed live by a full symphony orchestra. This is an extra special experience as David Arnold who has scored five Bond films will be present on stage for an intimate Q&A session before each screening. There will be three screenings of Casino Royale so make sure not to miss this debut. This is without a doubt a royal day out!
It is said to be one of the greatest motions pictures of all time. Who could forget the terrifying fear experienced when watching the ruthless great white at work in this Spielberg classic. Much of the film’s success has been attributed to John Williams’s iconic score. Audiences will have a rare opportunity to experience a live symphony orchestra performing the entire Jaws score in sync with the screening. There’s only one way to find out what lies beneath!
This one is just in time for Halloween and offers ample opportunity to dress up as your favourite Wednesday. Experience the world premiere of The Addams Family in concert. Composer Marc Shaiman presents his quirky and imaginative orchestral score. Watch your favourite family come to life with a live orchestra behind them.
Love is in the air this December as Beauty and the Beast will be screened in concert for the first time. The screening will be accompanied by the Philharmonia Orchestra as the romantic tale unfolds. This is an unmistakably original score that you’ll not want to miss. A tale as old as time with a twist.
The Harrington Collection is just 10 minutes walk from the Royal Albert Hall, which means that you could make this special events that much more spectacular by staying over night with us and dinning at one of the myriad restaurants in the area. Do speak to our reception team for our suggestions in the area. Book your stay here.
