It’s hard to believe that it’s been more than 50 years since Julie Andrews took audiences breath away in the classic movie “The Sound of Music.” If you’re a fan of the film and never had the chance to see it on the big screen, then you’ll want to get out your calendars for some big news: “The Sound of Music” will return to theaters around the country for two days only this fall.
The film will be shown Sept. 9 and Sept. 12 for just two showings each day, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. To find the closest showing to your hometown, simply visit the Fathom Events website, enter your zip code and voila! You’ll have a list of the theaters, available times and links to purchase tickets online.
The limited-engagement run is part of the TMC Big Screen Classics Series. Cable network TMC has teamed up with Fathom Events to bring an entire collection of some of the most beloved movies of all time back to theaters.
“The Sound of Music is the definition of a ‘feel-good’ movie, a film that captures the hearts of audiences of all ages in the most special way,” Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas told Forbes magazine. “It’s one of our most frequently requested best-performing classic titles, truly one of movie lovers’ favorite things.”
The movie was an adaptation of the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway musical. The film starred Julie Andrews as Maria, the nun turned governess for widower Captain Von Trapp’s (played by Christopher Plummer’s) seven children. It features most memorable songs including “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” and “Climb Every Mountain,” not to mention the title song.
“The Sound of Music” was both a commercial and critical success. It was the first movie to gross $100 million at the box office. The movie won five Oscars, including one for Best Picture.
