Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Robert Wise. 1965, 174 mins. DCP. With Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker. At the time of its release the most financially successful film ever made after Gone with the Wind, Wise’s spectacular adaptation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway show is one of cinema’s greatest musical extravaganzas. Julie Andrews gives an iconic performance as a novice nun whose life changes when sent to care for the bratty children of a handsome military captain (Plummer) on the heels of World War II. The Sound of Music bursts with unforgettable songs and glorious CinemaScope images shot on location in Salzburg, Austria.
