SF Symphony’s Film & Concert Series Continues into the Fall/Winter with these Six Movie Favorites

For five consecutive months, beginning this November, the San Francisco Symphony will host a new lineup of special evenings, combining movie classics and the orchestra. Films, both new and old, will be projected on a 60-foot screen above the symphony who will be performing the film’s soundtracks in real-time.

For the Fall and Winter season, the films on the 2018-19 schedule will include Jurassic Park, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Love Actually, Mary Poppins, La La Land, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
