At Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall, only one of the best flippin' concert halls in the UK, is hosing a series of live music with movie screenings over the course of the next ten months and the roster reads like an exercise in including something for absolutely everyone.

First up is the barnstorming Oscar winner, Rocketman, that charts the life of Elton John, live with a full orchestra. Imagine it! The film will be projected onto a huge ultra-HD screen, whilst the orchestra on stage brings to life the stunning soundtrack. Taking place on June 22 (that's a Saturday night, but no fighting) there are still plenty of seats in the Upper Circle and the Stalls.

On September 6, how about this for one last pre-back to school treat? Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse, one of the best animated films of the last decade, gets the orchestral treatment and given the score was created by Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated composer, Daniel Pemberton, it'll raise the roof.  

Blade Runner also lands in September while in October Twilight arrives and, in the run up to Christmas, The Holiday and Love Actually get the orchestral treatment on two different dates, with both likely to be very popular indeed.

And because you're the kind of organised cat that likes to keep the diary game tight, maybe book in for the early 2025 showings of Avatar: The Last Airbender or the movie they say saved cinema, Top Gun: Maverick.

If you're more of a naturephile than a cinephile, Symphony Hall will also host the immersive animal experience Life on Our Planet: Live in Concert, in October 2024.
