Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — Fans of the critically acclaimed film “Call Me By Your Name” will have another chance to watch it again — or for the first time, if you missed its brief commercial run — on the big screen with the world premiere of “Call Me By Your Name in Concert” in Manila.
Few films are as graceful and sublime in tackling coming of age as “Call Me By Your Name,” from its languid meditation on young love to its infectious fascination with arts and literature. Luca Guadagnino’s film has captured audiences around the world and has even won several awards including the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for James Ivory (based on André Aciman’s novel), not to mention a Best Actor nomination for (relative) newcomer Timothée Chalamet.
Watch Elio and Oliver’s relationship unfold accompanied by music from Bach, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Erik Satie, John Adams, and Sufjan Stevens played by the Manila Symphony Orchestra starting Oct. 28, 8 p.m. at the Samsung Hall, SM Aura. Limited early bird tickets are now available on SM Tickets.
Films in concert present a rare opportunity for a heightened movie experience — kind of like an IMAX 3D experience but for music and with a full orchestra.
Other iconic films that have enjoyed a similar treatment are “Star Wars: A New Hope” at The Royal Albert Hall in London (imagine the “Star Wars” theme played live), the “Harry Potter” film tour, “Fantasia” in The Royal Albert Hall, and “The Godfather” at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts in New York.
“Call Me By Your Name in Concert” is presented by CC: Concepts. Early bird tickets are ₱1,950 on SM Tickets (exclusive of ticket charges) and regular tickets are ₱2,700 on TicketWorld (exclusive of ticket charges).
