The Sound of Music

Sunday, Jul. 12, 2015

01:00 PM – 03:50 PM

Presented in conjunction with "Habsburg Splendor: Masterpieces from Vienna's Imperial Collections"

Julie Andrews stars as Maria in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s movie musical—celebrating its 50th anniversary!—about a nun who leaves the convent to become governess to the seven mischievous children of a widowed Navy captain (Christopher Plummer). Blending into a family doesn’t come easily, and it all unfolds with iconic songs and characters. Comedy, romance, and drama combine in this heartwarming tale set against the majestic Austrian Alps on the eve of World War II.

Each screening includes an intermission
