Planet Of The Apes With The Live BBC Concert Orchestra

Re-live the original masterpiece with a live orchestra

"Seminal simian sci-fi that blends satire with the drive and pace of an adventure story."

- Film4
Planet Of The Apes challenges, charms and excites in equal measures. In a rare balancing act, it raises thought-provoking questions about our culture without letting social commentary get in the way of the drama and action. Indeed, it is a film whose social subtexts seem as relevant now as ever. What better time, then, to re-live Franklin J Schaffner’s original 1968 sci-fi masterpiece, performed with a live orchestral accompaniment. That's right; for the first time ever, Jerry Goldsmith’s ground-breaking Oscar-nominated music is brought to life by the BBC Concert Orchestra, all conducted by the great Robert Ziegler. Brace yourself – this performance is guaranteed to give you goose-pimples. "As illuminatingly bleak a statement on human hubris as a Hollywood superproduction has given us." – Time Out "A film rich with unforgettable imagery, killer lines and physical thrills." – Empire Suitable for over 6s only. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. Certificate: PG. Runtime: 1 hour 47 minutes.
