Sing-Along The Sound of Music (1965)
There’s a certain something — a quintessential, movie-magical, undefinable something — about the “Big Five” musicals of Rodgers & Hammerstein. Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music were all enormous successes on Broadway, and most were huge Hollywood hits as well. But none was as big a hit as The Sound of Music, the timeless story of Maria (Julie Andrews), a novitiate who will soon take her vows as a nun, and the huge Austrian family she’s assigned to nanny and teach. Like so many Rodgers & Hammerstein classics, it’s a story of love and devotion and difficult choices, and it’s told through stirring music and memorable dance numbers. It’s also, in many ways, the original sing-along — the first movie Tampa Theatre presented with the words to all the songs built into the print. We’re happy to bring Sing-Along The Sound of Music back again, and we hope you’ll join us in making sure “the hills are alive with”… well, you know.
