Sing-a-long-a Sound of Music 20th Anniversary Screening
The ultimate sing-a-long returns to the BFI to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
This event is hosted by and presented in partnership with Sing-a-Long-a.
Dir Robert Wise
With Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker
Let’s start at the very beginning... 20 years ago, the singalong experience was born at the BFI when the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival (now BFI Flare) gave the world The Sound of Music with singalong subtitles, a fancy dress competition, Countess Candy von Floss and even a real nun! It’s time to get creative with your old curtains as we’re back with a one-off, very special 20th anniversary edition. Join the original team for some reminiscence, a look at how the event became an international phenomenon and, of course, communal singing to our favourite musical. There will be prizes for the most inventive costumes. Nazis not admitted.
For those of you not yet converted, Sing-a-Long-a Sound of Music is a screening of the classic Julie Andrews film musical in glorious, full-screen technicolor, complete with subtitles so that the whole audience can sing along!
Then of course there is the famous fancy-dress competition in which everyone who has come in costume is invited on to the stage to show off their fantastic tailoring skills.
So get those vocal chords warmed up, cut up those chintz curtains and hurry down for the perfect night out. Fancy dress is not obligatory but highly recommended!
