From The Terminator to Superman, Lord of the Rings to Star Wars, the venue caters for all tastes

Fans of watching classic movies while listening to the score being played live are in for a treat in the weeks and months ahead at the Royal Albert Hall.

This will be followed by Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (November 1-3) and ET: The Extra-Terrestrial (December 8). Details here
