In 1930's Austria, a young woman named Maria is failing miserably in her attempts to become a nun. When the Navy captain Georg Von Trapp writes to the convent asking for a governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job.

 

The Strand is delighted to bring one of the most beloved movie musicals of all time back to the Big Screen for ONE DAY ONLY!  It hasn't been seen at The Strand since our Grand Reopening year of 2009.

 

Bring the entire family to this joyful classic, which was nominated for 10 Oscars and won 5, including Best Picture and Best Director, Robert Wise.

 

The movie is based on Maria Von Trapp's 1949 memoir, The Story of the Von Trapp Family Singers. She also published another book, Maria, in 1972 and said that while she was able to attend the opening of the musical on Broadway, she did not have the same luck with the film premiere in 1965. She was able to convince 20th Century Fox to let her see a preview of the movie and expected an invitation to the premiere but "when I didn't hear anything about it and no invitation arrived, I really humbled myself to go and ask the producer whether I would be allowed to come. He said he was very sorry, indeed, but there were no seats left" (p. 216).

 

During the filming of this film, Julie Andrews sang "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" to the children in the cast to entertain them between shooting scenes. Since Mary Poppins (1964) hadn't yet been released, they just thought she'd made up the song for them.

 

Christopher Plummer intensely disliked working on the film. He's been known to refer to it as "The Sound of Mucus" or "S&M" and likened working with Julie Andrews to "being hit over the head with a big Valentine's Day card, every day." Nontheless, he and Andrews have remained close friends ever since.
