Harry Potter in Concert
Okay so my city’s local symphony does this thing
Basically they play a movie without the music and the symphony plays the music live along with the movie
And the movie they’re doing now is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and I just saw it tonight and it was A W E S O M E
Like it was so good there were times where I forgot the music was live
I mean, I’ve seen this movie like a thousand times but with the live symphony, I felt like I was watching it for the first time
And there were some people that came in cosplay (there was one guy cosplaying as Quirrell)
And the lady I was sitting next to had never seen the movie and had only vaguely heard of the franchise through her grandkids (she told me all this while we got to talking during intermission) and I guess she had no idea there were seven more movies and seven books and long story short, I got a 60+ woman into HP for the first time.
Ugh guys it was SO GOOD now I want to see them do all the movies live.
(And apparently next month they’re doing Star Trek Into Darkness live so I’m gonna try to get tickets to that)
