LA Phil (and Dudamel) live at the movies in Columbia

Press notice on this series somehow didn't make it here, or maybe I just missed it: the Los Angeles Philharmonic and their dynamic, charismatic conductor-slash-media-sensation Gustavo Dudamel are doing three live concerts simulcast throughout movie theaters in the US and Canada, much like the similar venture of the Metropolitan Opera. The first of these will be this Sunday (January 9) at 5 PM local time, and like the Met broadcasts, the Regal cinemas out at Village at Sandhill will be showing these LA Phil broadcasts.

The main feature of the program is Beethoven's 7th Symphony, but also John Adams' "Slonimsky's Earbox" and Leonard Bernstein's "Jeremiah" Symphony as well.

Info on the series here;  link to buying tickets online for the Columbia (Sandhill) venue here.
