The film is score is by John Williams--famous for Star Wars, ET, Jurassic Park and Harry Potter--and the film was nominated for, and won, numerous academy awards.

This rules out an outdoor cinema set up somewhere in Hurtle Square, it's almost a shame considering the gorgeous weather we've had over the past couple of days.
