From swashbuckling pirate ships to intergalactic laser battles, you’ll be transported to the world of the silver screen in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s A Night at the Movies concert at The Hawth, Crawley, on Sunday, June 14.

The world of film has offered hundreds of fantastic scores, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are offering the chance to hear some of the best, from the classic sweeping strings of Gone with the Wind to the epic fantasy soundscape of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

The concert also includes music from Star Wars, Harry Potter, The Magnificent Seven, Indiana Jones, Jaws, Pirates of the Caribbean and Schindler’s List among others.

Ian Maclay, managing director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, said: “This is a thrilling programme of film music with something for the whole family to enjoy.”

The Orchestra is no stranger to the film world; they are frequently found in the recording studio and have performed extensively for film and television.

Their earliest film recording was The Red Shoes in 1948 when the orchestra was only in its second year.

Other film soundtracks include David Lean’s A Passage to India, Enduring Love starring Daniel Craig and Hyde Park on Hudson, released in UK cinemas in 2012.

The Orchestra also featured as themselves in Charles Dance’s Ladies in Lavender alongside Dame Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.
