Anniversary screening of ‘The Sound of Music’ is ‘seeing for the first time’

The Sound of Music was produced by Robert Wise in 1965. His hard work won the 1966 Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director. These were among the five Oscars and two Golden Globes awarded to the film and people that acted in it that year. The musical was a film adaptation to the 1959 Broadway musical by the same name.
The SOund of Music posterThe story is that of a well meaning, if mischievous, young woman studying to become a nun. When her superiors at the convent can no longer overlook her exuberance she is placed as a nanny to seven motherless children. Her relentless good nature strikes a chord bringing laughter, music and love back into the Von Trapp home. The new family is forced to flee their beloved Austria when the Nazi government offers the Captain a nonnegotiable position is their fleet.
Fathom Events aired The Sound of Music in theaters as a celebration of the films 50th anniversary. This film has been a favorite since childhood. Seeing the movie on the big screen was almost like seeing it again for the first time. The music and political backdrop pull you into a late 1930’s Austria. Maria’s upbeat attitude is infectious. The love story takes your breath away. The triumphant end, as the Von Trapp’s scale the mountains to safety, brings hope even in the midst of fear.
A second screening is set for Wednesday, April 22, 2015 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m. local time. Tickets for “TCM Presents: The Sound of Music” are now available for purchase at participating theater box offices and online atwww.FathomEvents.com.
