This is so much fun! Every year the Philadelphia Orchestra picks a movie or two and plays the score live as you watch the movie. A few years ago I went to see them do this for the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. Tomorrow night at SPAC, they'll be providing the score live for The Princess Bride! Who doesn't love this movie?!? As it says on the SPAC website, "Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles… Experience one of the most beloved films of all time as never before… with the power of a full symphony orchestra performing the entire musical score live-to-picture! Directed by Rob Reiner, The Princess Bride features an all-star cast including Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Wallace Shawn, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Billy Crystal, Carol Kane, Christopher Guest, Fred Savage and André the Giant. The great Peter Falk narrates this romantic tale of the beautiful maiden, Buttercup, and her one true love, a young farm hand named Westley. After he’s captured by a ruthless pirate and presumed dead, Buttercup’s unhappy marriage to the horrible Prince Humperdinck seems inevitable. But before the wedding can take place, she’s kidnapped by three outlaws and it’s up to a mysterious Man in Black to come to her rescue…Now for the first time, composer Mark Knopfler’s unforgettable score has been specially arranged for symphony orchestra. "
Do not miss this performance. It's so much fun and it's perfect for the whole family. Oh, and Stewarts if providing free ice cream for everyone before the show starts! You can't lose. Check it out tomorrow night at SPAC. Get your tickets by clicking here.
