Following the phenomenal success of The Fellowship of the Ring last year, the full RT Concert Orchestra and chorus now perform to The Two Towers, the second epic fantasy film in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Beneath an immense screen, the orchestra and singers will bring Howard Shores music of Middle Earth uniquely to life in what promises to be another unforgettable occasion.

Highlights of these screenings to date have included The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, Psycho, Bugs Bunny on Broadway and of course last years massively successful The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
