Movie night or a night at the symphony? Now you don't have to choose thanks to the San Francisco Symphony's newly created Film Night Series that pairs a live orchestra with some of tinsel towns favorite movies. The inaugural event began October 30 with Alfred Hitcock’s "Psycho" and a five more films are previewed to appear through June.
Guests hunker down in the cushy seats at the city's gorgeous Davies Symphony Hall, the lights dim, and the orchestra begins to play as old classics and epic scenes play out on a big screen above the stage. The dialogue and sound effects of the film remain, but the score has been “scrubbed,” allowing the conductor to create his own accompaniment.
Check out some of these upcoming dates, including Oscar Night on February 15th when some of Hollywood's best-loved film scenes of all time will play out larger than life. Kiss me Rhett Butler! Here's lookin' at you kid! You get the idea.
Tickets start at only $20
