Superman 1978 Film Still

Superman in Concert

Principal Conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra Thomas Wilkins leads the LA Phil in John Williams’ triumphant score to the 1978 film Superman. Directed by Richard Donner, and showcasing a young Christopher Reeve, Superman features a star-studded cast including Margot Kidder as intrepid reporter Lois Lane, Gene Hackman as the villainous Lex Luthor, and the inimitable Marlon Brando as Jor-El.

Donner’s beloved film adaptation relays the inspiring origins of Superman, from his narrow escape as an infant from the doomed planet Krypton to his formative years on a farm in Smallville, Kansas, and finally to his arrival in Metropolis, where he leads dual lives as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and as the mythical “Man of Steel.” Wilkins and the LA Phil perform the score live-to-picture while the film plays in high definition on the big screen.
