“The Music of Morricone” film series happening at BAM before Ennio Morricone’s Barclays concert
As you may recall, legendary composer Ennio Morricone will be in North America in March for concerts in Los Angeles and New York, including Brooklyn's Barclays Center on March 23 where he will lead a 200-piece orchestra. Tickets are still available.
Leading up to his Barclays appearance, BAMcinématek is presenting "The Music of Morricone," a film series running March 20 - 22 featuring four great movies with Morricone scores: Roland Joffé's The Mission (March 20, tickets); John Carpenter's The
Thing (March 21, tickets); Gillo Pontecorvo's The Battle of Algiers (March 21, tickets); and Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West (March 22, tickets). Morricone will be at the 5:30 PM screening of Once Upon a Time in the West to introduce the film --
that one's already sold out, unfortunately, but there are other showings if you want to see the movie on the big screen.
UPDATE: Turns out none of the screenings are on sale yet. Tickets go on sale January 29 for BAMcinématek members and February 3 for the general public. Good news!
