Just In: THE SOUND OF MUSIC Coming to Select Theaters This April!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of cinema's greatest treasures The Sound of Music, Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Twentieth Century Fox will bring the classic musical to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event on Sunday, April 19 and Wednesday, April 22. The cinematic event will include a specially produced introduction by TCM host Robert Osborne.

The hit musical was originally released in 1965 and won five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Music, and has proven to remain a relevant and timeless classic. Hollywood recently paid tribute to the film and its landmark anniversary at the 2015 Oscars, which included a medley of four songs from the film as performed by Lady Gaga. This year's special two-day cinematic event will have people buzzing, humming and singing all the way to the box office.

Tickets for "TCM Presents: The Sound of Music" are now available for purchase at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in nearly 700 movie theaters through Fathom's Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations, please visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Originally written by Richard Rodgers, with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, "The Sound of Music" was a smash hit in its time, and throughout the 50 years since, it has become a cinematic staple beloved worldwide. In this true-life story, Julie Andrews lights up the screen as Maria, a spirited young Austrian woman who leaves the convent to become a governess for Captain von Trapp's (Christopher Plummer) seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children - and their father.
