Seasonal Special Happenings


When: Sun., Nov. 8 2015

Originally released in 1940, Fantasia received widespread acclaim when it first hit theaters. The innovative use of music had much to do with the positive reception. Set to classical music conducted by Leopold Stokowski, the film features several performances by the Philadelphia Orchestra. Today at 2 and 7 p.m., the Cedar Lee Theatre will screen a new print that features a behind-the-scenes look at the orchestra's rehearsals. In addition, conductor Yannik Nezet-Seguin will discuss the film's significance and provide some historical context. Tickets are $12.50; the film screens again at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. (Niesel)
