NSO Pops: Home Alone: 25th Anniversary Film with Live Orchestra
Spend Thanksgiving weekend with one ingenious little boy, two bumbling burglars, and more laughs than you can count! Celebrate the 25th anniversary of this feel-good holiday film on the big screen with John Williams’s score played live.
Twenty-five years ago, a young Macaulay Culkin stole cinemagoers’ hearts by ingeniously outwitting bumbling burglars in Home Alone. John Hughes’s smash 1990 film, directed by Chris Columbus, was hailed as “rambunctiously funny… every kid’s anarchical wish come true” (The Washington Post) and “the first Christmas black comedy for children” (The New York Times). Over Thanksgiving weekend, bring your entire family to ring in the holiday season with the uproarious slapstick and exuberant charm of this feel-good classic movie event. Experience it like never before on a big screen above the Concert Hall stage as John Williams’s beloved Oscar-nominated score is performed live by the NSO Pops and The Choral Arts Society of Washington.
Performance Timing: Approximately 2-1/4 hours, including one 15-minute intermission
