The Death of Stalin - In Consert

The score will be performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and be followed by a Q and A with "director Armando Iannucci, composer Christopher Willis, producer Kevin Loader and stars of the film Jason Isaacs and Michael Palin." I think maybe they will show the movie too, but I'm not sure.

Not sure if it comes in conflict with Jason filming Thw White Lotus, but his name is still there, at least. It's on March 27.

The link says "... screened in live synchronisation with Christopher Willis' powerful score for the first time."

I take that to mean they will show the film and play the music live at the same time - presumably the music bit of the soundtrack will be missing, but the dialogue will still be there.

It's too far away for me, but great if you live near London.
