Wonderstruck Free Advance Screening w/ Live Orchestra
Be the first to see this stunningly gorgeous new film directed by Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven, Carol, Velvet Goldmine) starring Julianne Moore, and breakout performances by newcomers Millicent Simmonds and Oakes Fegley, and Jaden Michael.
Based on Brian Selznick’s critically acclaimed novel, “Wonderstruck” follows Ben and Rose, children from two different eras who secretly wish their lives were different. Ben longs for the father he has never known, while Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. When Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his home and Rose reads an enticing headline in the newspaper, both children set out on quests that unfold with mesmerizing symmetry.
Oscar-nominated composer Carter Burwell (Carol, Fargo, Where the Wild Things Are) will conduct The Hollywood Cinematic Orchestra in a live performance of his score to Wonderstruck. This special advanced screening will feature a 38-person orchestra, which will perform the entire score as the film plays at the gorgeous Theatre at Ace Hotel.
