On Thursday, October 30, from 7.30pm, the Manchester-based, highly acclaimed orchestra, conducted by Stephen Bell, will perform extracts from some of the great film scores.

Thrilling quests, epic romances and expansive panoramas - they’re all here in this spectacular evening, all lit up by the legendary sound of The Halle.
The concert includes John Williams’s thrilling music for Star Wars, plus Titanic by James Horner, Korngold’s barnstorming score for the 1938 movie The Adventures Of Robin Hood, Maurice Jarre’s sweeping music from Lawrence Of Arabia, plus more John Williams in the form of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Schindler’s List and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
