When The Sound of Music (175 min, English, no subtitles) was released in 1965, it took the world by storm, earning five Oscars—including Best Picture and Best Director—and becoming the highest-grossing film ever.

The musical tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family in Austria while she decides whether to become a nun. After bringing love and music into the lives of the family, she marries the father and, together with the children, finds a way to survive the loss of their homeland to the Nazis. It stars Christopher Plummer and Julie Andrews.

The film will be screened in person in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. Tickets are $5 each for Museum members or $10 each for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today. If you’re already a member, log in and the member discount will be reflected in your cart.
