It's the latest movie to get the live treatment
Fans of Star Wars will soon be able to watch one of the original instalments in the franchise scored by a live orchestra.
The movie is the latest silver screen moment to be given the live treatment, following the likes of Jurassic Park, and Final Fantasy being screened alongside musicians playing their scores.
Now, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope will be shown in the same way, with five special concerts announced at London’s Royal Albert Hall. It will be the first time the film has been presented live in the UK.
The London Symphony Orchestra will recreate the score at the events in the capital, with other orchestras taking over at other dates. Fans around the UK will also be able to see the performance in various cities after the London premiere.
