Music and cinema go hand in hand in Benidorm

The Mediterranean Symphony Orchestra presents 'A Night at the Movies', following in the footsteps of John Williams and Ennio Morricone

Music and cinema go hand in hand in Benidorm

The Julio Iglesias Auditorium in Benidorm's Aigüera Park will host 'A Night at the Movies' on the 7th of August at 10pm, with the Mediterranean Symphony Orchestra (OSM), conducted by Juan Antonio Ramírez. The show is aimed at all audiences, especially film lovers.

The philharmonic group will perform pieces by two of the most prolific and impactful composers in the film industry, John Williams and Ennio Morricone. It will be a distinctive Benidorm Music & Emotion event that brings the touch and quality of the Mediterranean Symphony Orchestra.

Benidorm is convinced that people attending the concert will be transported by the music of Star Wars, Superman and Indiana Jones to the moments of happiness we experienced when we were younger as we saw Hollywood's greatest hits on the big screen.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to come to the Julio Iglesias Auditorium and it has been announced that the sound show, aimed at all audiences, will be complemented by a large screen where fragments of the films and special effects will be projected. It is assured that the audience will enjoy the hour and a half long show.

Juan Antonio Ramírez has described Williams and Morricone as two of the most iconic figures in the world of soundtracks. Composers who were not afraid of the audience, who made Hollywood and later the whole world fall in love with them. The proposal of the OSM recovers the great stories of cinema that are never forgotten, it is an invitation to adventure and to believe again in what excited us as children, he added.

About Benidorm, Ramírez assures that it is a city that helps you to believe in dreams, just like the seventh art does. Without it, quoting what Spielberg said to John Williams, bicycles would not fly, nor broomsticks would be able to play quidditch matches.

The show 'A Night at the Movies' will be carried out in accordance with the guidelines issued by the health authorities for the prevention of Covid-19. The safety distance will be guaranteed, the routes will be properly signposted and there will be hydro-alcoholic gel dispensers.
