The Good, The Bad and The Ugly at the Liverpool Philharmonic

I mentioned this in a comment on a previous post but thought I'd share it here as well. I'm made up as the Wife has treated us to a couple of ticket's to go and see a showing of Sergio Leone's 1966 classic, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. It has been years since I have seen it so I cannot wait.

It's a special showing at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. I've seen a few movies there. Lawrence of Arabia, It's A Wonderful Life, The Philidelphia Story and Scrooge.

The Philharmonic Hall is a great venue that, obviously, mainly hosts concerts and the like. However, when they have a movie on it is shown on its unique Walturdaw cinema screen. As the art deco screen rises up from the stage for a film, it is accompanied by organ music from Dave Nicholas, who is apparantly Merseyside's only resident cinema organist. It certainly makes a memorable evening.

In honour of the film here are the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain playing the theme from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. It's brilliant. Let me know what you think.
