Jurassic Park Live will be getting the world premiere treatment on 4th and 5th November . If you’ve never been to one of these events before, they are a must for movie soundtrack lovers – especially one so iconic as the John Williams Jurassic Park score. While the movie projected onto a giant screen, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra (conducted by Ludwig Wicki) play the score live and promises to blow you away. The performances kicks of the Royal Albert Hall’s inaugural film festival (full line-up to be announced shortly).

It’s an experience that you’ll never forget and we can’t recommend it highly enough.

And as if that that wasn’t enough, we’ve got more!…. To mark the 20th anniversary of Independence Day, the Roland Emmerich movie will be also get the ‘Live’ treatment as the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra play the score while you watch the fantastic alien invasion movie.

Independence DayQ&A with Sherlock and five-times James Bond composer David Arnold will be in attendance and will also do a who will be doing a talk before the movie begins:

“It’s a film that doesn’t pretend to be anything other than what it is: a huge piece of cinematic fun with characters you learn to love, bad guys you learn to hate and spectacle that satisfied a lot of inner children who longed to smash things up. The score held hands with these ideas and followed suit.

“The Royal Albert Hall is such an iconic venue and a personal favourite of mine – it’s always an honour to be on the stage, especially with your own material. The Hall screams ‘event’ and Independence Day was one of the biggest event movies of the last 30 years.”

Independence Day Live will play at the Royal Albert Hall September 22nd. You can book tickets to both Jurassic Park Live and Independence Day Live right here!

Let’s kick the tires and light the fires, big daddy!
