Julie Andrews’ breakout role as Maria, a woman who leaves a covenant and becomes a governess in Robert Wise’s heartfelt musical The Sound of Music plays at the Gables Cinema as part of our children and family program Family Day on Aragon. Set in the 1930s in Salzburg, Austria, The Sound of Music tells the story of Maria (Julie Andrews) who successfully becomes a governess to disorderly children of Naval officer Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer) by showing them kindness, love, and music in a changing world. The film was scored by the illustrious Rodgers and Hammerstein who are known for musicals such as South Pacific and The King and I, giving generations songs like “My Favorite Things” ,“Edelweiss”, & “Do-Re-Mi.” This film is appropriate for ages 6 and up. Family Day on Aragon is in partnership with Books & Books and the Coral Gables Museum. Tickets to these special Family Day screenings are Pay What You Can.
