CineConcerts is partnering with Warner Brothers Consumer Products to launch a series of film concert tours based on the “Harry Potter” franchise.
Dubbed “The Harry Potter Film Concert Series,” the orchestral concert experience will kick off with a tour for “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” later this year. Each film will be reformated so audiences will be able to experience a live symphony orchestra performance of the entire score in-sync with the film, which will be simultaneously projected onto a high-definition 40-foot screen.
CineConcerts President Justin Freer says: “Original dialogue and sound effects will be kept intact. All the music is pulled out of the film, so that’s one of the interesting challenges – mixing the live music against the dialogue and the effects.”
The series begins June 23rd in Philadelphia ahead of a North American tour. No word on an international rollout at this point.
