Williams E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial (complete with film) 

John Williams is E.T.,”Steven Spielberg is quoted as saying. In their decades-long collaboration, Williams has composed the music for almost every one of Spielberg’s movies, but his Oscar®- and Grammy-winning score for the beloved E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial was so exceptional, the famous director actually cut the final sequence to match the music, instead of the other way around. Join The Philadelphia Orchestra for an unforgettable performance of this magical score live to picture, as the entire film is projected in HD. Principal Guest Conductor Stéphane Denève, a Williams aficionado who remembers E.T. as the first time he cried at the movies, conducts. Just try to avoid chills—or tears—when that bicycle pedals off the mountain and flies past the moon, lifted by Williams’s tender and soaring melodies.
