Music and movies go together as naturally as peanut butter and jelly or chocolate chip cookies and milk. And like that classic black and white combination, you can hardly imagine movies without music. To celebrate the partnership, TCM is taking Music and the Movies, a traveling exhibition, to the Irvine Spectrum Center from April 21st -24th. After that, it’ll be part of TCM’s Classic Film Festival in Hollywood, bringing everything back full circle.
An interactive and multimedia experience, Music and the Movies engages audiences with video and photographs from some of Hollywood’s most iconic films. In addition, there’ll also be a few pieces of movie memorabilia on display, like the iconic bathing suit that Leslie Caron wore in Gigi and costumes from Singin’ in the Rain. It’ll be at the Irvine Spectrum Center, letting shoppers and movie buffs experience everything that’ll be on display at the TCM Classic Film Festival this year.
A special collaboration with D23, Disney’s Official Fan Club, will celebrate the music and films of Walt Disney, including Fantasia and the Silly Symphonies. The festival will also include forums, film screenings and events featuring such luminaries as Bernard Herrmann, Angela Lansbury, George and Ira Gershwin and more. So whether or not you’ll be attending the festival up in Hollywood, you’ll be able to get a taste of the festivities right here in Orange County.
The Irvine Spectrum Center is located at 71 Fortune Dr., in Irvine. For more information, visit their official web site at www.shopirvinespectrumcenter.com. For more information on the 2011 TCM Classic Film Festival, visit www.tcm.com.
