Default The Tree of Life Screening + Live Film Score with 100 piece-Orchestra and Choir

Who wants to meet up in NYC and check this out in November?

Tickets go on sale in late July!

The movie/orchestra will be playing at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. See below for more information:



THE TREE OF LIFE
Written and directed by Terrence Malick
Wordless Music Orchestra
Conducted by Ryan McAdams
Robert Fleitz, piano
Jennifer Zetlan, soprano
Music by Bach, Couperin, Mozart, Berlioz, Brahms, Smetana, Mussorgsky, Mahler, Holst, Górecki, Tavener, Giya Kancheli, Barry Guy, and Zbigniew Preisner.
BAM Howard Gilman Opera House (30 Lafayette Ave.)
November 18-19, 2016 at 7:30pm
In November, for two nights only, BAM and Wordless Music present the U.S. live premiere of Terrence Malick’s (Badlands, Days of Heaven) THE TREE OF LIFE, with 100 members of the Wordless Music Orchestra and Choir performing to a full screening of Malick’s 2011 masterpiece.

Winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes, this impressionist epic meditates on the whys and hows of the universe, framed within an engaging coming-of-age tale set in 1950s Waco, TX. Featuring brilliant performances by Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, and Jessica Chastain, the film boasts Malick’s signature striking imagery and ambitious themes while incorporating a rich range of powerful and iconic music. Including compositions by Berlioz, Mahler, Brahms, Smetana, Zbigniew Preisner, Giya Kancheli, John Tavener, and Henryk Górecki across its two-plus hour running time, the film is as awe-inspiring musically as it is visually and philosophically.

Tickets go on sale via bam.org/thetreeoflife starting Monday, July 25 for BAM members, and Monday, August 1 to the general public.

THANKS for setting this up, JW007. I'm definitely going. I'll be visiting a friend in Maine, and we're going to take a bus down to catch this and the MET's Egyptian collection.

He has to work, so we're aiming at for the Nov 18 performance. We'll probably in the city on the 19th though, too.

I'm up for seeing how people's plans pan out. It would be great to meet up around either of the two performances, and if we could do that after everyone has seen it, that'd prolly be maximo.

Ideas for hotels? I stayed in the West Village at the Jane last time I was there. Tokyo-size rooms, but a real Wes Anderson vibe and affordable for NYC. And a nice rooftop cafe/bar. Any other suggestions?

Sounds great RojD! By the way, I still want to visit the "Museum of the Moving Image" in Queens. Have you heard of that place or been there yet? It's supposedly one of the best museums in the world for cinema history and whatnot. They have a lot of famous directors and writers who hold events there. I think Terence Davies was just recently there to hold a screening last week. http://www.movingimage.us/

What better way to visit such a place than with certified film buffs like us. Maybe we should make that place where we all meet up, instead of a bar like I thought earlier. I think that'd be perfect! They are open from 11:30 am to 7 pm on Saturday and Sunday. We can hold the meetup on Sunday at like around 2 pm or something for all the blu-ray.com forum members at that museum!

I stayed at the Jane Hotel once, and know exactly where that is. I was just in NYC a week or two ago and actually stopped down there again on Jane st. to see how it was looking. The rooms went up to like $125 a night (it used to be like $90 a night years ago!). And yeah, they're super tiny! But that's an option for people to stay there! I usually go with Airbnb.com and rent out either a private room or entire place.

Haven't used Airbnb but I might on this trip. I haven't gotten killed using Uber, lol!

Looks like I'll be at the Friday Tree of Life and at the MET most of Saturday. I'm going to Egypt with friends over Christmas (yeah, I know....hard life), and we're going to meet up at the museum and spend a big chunk of the afternoon in that exhibit. I can meet up pretty much wherever afterwards. I have to return to Maine Sunday morning because a friend has to work, so I can't do the MET thing another day.

Museum of the Moving Image is totally on my list for a next trip, though. Thanks for pointing it out. Sorry I can't make it this trip.

I attended a wordless music event like this one for There Will Be Blood at a theatre in NYC a few years ago. It was amazing!

Damn, I'll be in NYC the week before to see Hamilton, so I cannot swing another trip that soon after. Sounds awesome though!

Well, I went ahead and bought 2 tickets for The Tree of Life 100-piece symphony orchestra for Sat. night, Nov. 19 at the B.A.M.!

Here are my seats!

G39 Mezzanine 4
G41 Mezzanine 4

They were $35 each. I couldn't see myself buying the $55 or $75 seats even though the location was better. I've seen the film enough times and the music is the main thing for me. It will sound good regardless of seating choice.

So I'm up for meeting for sure.

And I'm thinking we should meet up after this is over, on Sat. night, at "Videology" in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It's a bar with a theater in the back. We could meet there like around 11 pm!

Great, JW! I'm going Friday night (looks like row 3, but I'm anticipating some good voice solos; I sit close at movies anyway). I'll be staying in Brooklyn on Saturday night, too and my friend and I will find the place.

See you there! Excellent!

Awesome news! So we are both in for the show. And even better you'll be in the city another night too. So where in Brooklyn will you be staying at? I'm aiming to reserve an entire apartment somewhere in Williamsburg if I can get a friend of mine to split it with me. The bar, Videology, is in Williamsburg also, on Bedford Ave. So once we get more updates from other people on the forum, I will post the official announcement for the after-party on this thread and in the Criterion thread.

thanks, RojD, for the visitor message.

I know I can check myself, but do you guys know if there are tickets left for Saturday?

I'd be looking forward to geeking out w/ you ppl prob as much as I'd be looking fwd to the screening. I like the film just fine. ..and if I do come, I promise not to say a single bad word about Malick.

bwdowiak:

I just checked and there are still many tickets left, like about 550 tickets for the 11/19 show available at this time, so you have nothing to worry about.

Yeah, geeking out with you guys is equally as interesting as seeing this show! Maybe even better! Lol.
