London's Harry Potter love-in shows no sign of slowing down.
Adding to London's Harry Potter shops, location tours, upcoming exhibitions and current theatre show, next year London will host a cinematic evening showing the first Harry Potter film accompanied by a live orchestra.
The 'film concert' of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone will take place at the Royal Albert Hall on 11, 12 and 13 May 2017.
Get your hands on a ticket, and you'll be treated to the film played on a 40ft screen, enhanced by John Williams' inimitable score performed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
Other Royal Albert Hall Film Concerts
Harry Potter isn't the only film classic getting the 'with live orchestral accompaniment' treatment at the Royal Albert Hall this coming season.
Film Concerts at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre
And there's more. The 'classic film plus live orchestra' formula is being showcased in a year-long festival at the Royal Festival Hall, starting in October.
The Southbank Centre's Film Scores Live festival includes film concerts of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, There Will Be Blood (remember Johnny Greenwood’s striking film score?) and David Lean's Brief Encounter, featuring a newly commissioned orchestral soundtrack performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
The festival will finish with a trio of Alfred Hitchcock classics with live music accompaniment. Both Psycho and Vertigo will be screened accompanied by the London Philharmonic Orchestra; and silent film The Lodger will be shown alongside a live improvised soundtrack by organist David Briggs.
