Film Concerts Live! To Perform John Williams Classics All Over The World

film concerts live!

If, like me you're a fan of soundtracks then you may have been lucky enough to have listened to your favourite piece being played live by a professional orchestra.  The live experience of hearing and feeling the emotion being generated while the soundtrack plays is something everyone should have the opportunity of experiencing.

Thanks to FILM CONCERTS LIVE! that experience is possible.  Not only do they play some of the finest soundtracks in movie history but they perform while the movie plays on a big screen.  You may have seen this already on one of the extras on the E.T. DVD a few years back.

FILM CONCERTS LIVE! is a co-venture of IMG Artists and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency which if you're a John Williams fan will know they have close ties with the composer.  It's no wonder then that three of the films they are currently performing their magic to are actually John Williams soundtracks.  Home Alone, Raiders of the Lost Ark and the previously mentioned E.T.  The other films are Back to the Future which has the legendary soundtrack from Alan Silvestri and Michael Giacchino's Star Trek with it's powerful score.

The concerts are performed all over the world, from Australia to Europe and the USA.  One of the concerts will be taking place at the Hollywood Bowl in September and The Los Angeles Philharmonic will give the world premiere of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial.  Sticking with Steven Spielberg movies and in December, lucky ticket holders in Switzerland will be able to listen to the  21st Century Orchestra at KKL in Lucerne perform the soundtrack to Raiders of the Lost Ark (one of my favourite soundtracks - Rob.)

If you're a soundtrack fan and want to experience a classic soundtrack being played live, and lets be honest who wouldn't?  Then head over to FILM CONCERTS LIVE! website and check out their dates.  If you do go to one of the concerts (or have already been) make sure you let The Bearded Trio know and we may post the photos on here.

You can keep up to date with FILM CONCERTS LIVE! On Twitter and Facebook too.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
