Edinburgh audiences will have the rare opportunity to experience film favourites as never before – with the magic of a live orchestra.

The fabulous Senbla Concert Orchestra will provide the orchestral backdrop to British Christmas cinematic classic, Love Actually. Directed by Richard Curtis and originally released in cinemas in 2003, Love Actually tells ten separate yet interweaving stories of love around Christmas time. The full, live orchestra will perform Craig Armstrong’s evocative score, with the film being projected onto the Usher Hall’s huge screen. Make sure you kick off the holiday season and get into the Christmas spirit by experiencing Love Actually like you never have before!

We’re walking in the air…It isn’t Christmas until The Snowman has taken you on his magical journey through the winter sky. Enjoy this special showing of the festive classic on the large screen on 21 December, accompanied live by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and narrated by our guest presenter Jamie MacDougall. Perfect for the whole family, join us for our Christmas party filled with seasonal favourites, carols old and new – and, of course, a chance for everyone to sing along!

The RSNO will also reunite with the legendary film label Varèse Sarabande to celebrate its 40th anniversary in style in November, with live renditions of music from some of the greatest TV shows and films ever made. Varèse producer Robert Townson is joined by conductor Diego Navarro and an exciting group of superstar composers – including the legendary Patrick Doyle and Rachel Portman – as we look back on some of the label’s greatest highlights. With tributes to Jerry Goldsmith (Alien), Elmer Bernstein (To Kill a Mockingbird) and Alex North (Spartacus), plus blockbuster television themes (Game of Thrones) and movies (The Goonies, Back to the Future, The Matrix, The Abyss, The Iron Giant, Terminator 2, The Last of The Mohicans and Stargate), make sure you don’t miss this red carpet gala celebration!
