Princess Cruises and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment take The Sound of Music out to sea
From mid-April, Princess Cruises will partner with Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to screen the biggest movie musical of all time, The Sound of Music, on board all 18 of its ships.
Featuring sing-a-longs, trivia games, and other movie-themed experiences throughout the year, it is part of a year-long campaign to honour the classic film and will celebrate the 50th anniversaries of both the cruise line and the musical.
Paul Ludlow, Princess Cruises’ managing director UK and Europe, said: “Watching the von Trapps on our open-air big screen will be a unique experience for fans of The Sound of Music. In a year in which both Princess Cruises and The Sound of Music mark their golden anniversaries, this is a truly memorable way to join in the celebrations.”
The Sound of Music will be shown once on every sailing throughout 2015 on Princess Cruises’ 300 sq ft “Movies Under the Stars” screen, while the sing-a-long version will be shown in onboard theatres. Song birds can meet and rehearse for a special The Sound of Music edition of Princess Pop Choir and a themed trivia challenge will test fans movie knowledge.
A phenomenon upon its debut in 1965, The Sound of Music won five Academy Awards®, including “Best Picture” and continues to inspire audiences around the world with unforgettable songs including “Do-Re-Mi,” “My Favourite Things,” “Climb Every Mountain,” and “The Sound of Music.” Starring Oscar® winners Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, the film follows Maria (Andrews), the warm-hearted young woman who brings joy and music to Captain von Trapp (Plummer) and his seven children.
