Family Flicks Film Series: The Sound of Music

  • This is a past program
Recommended for ages 6+*

In its 50th anniversary year, the classic musical (the subject of a 2015 Vanity Fair story that features new behind-the-scenes revelations) screens at the Hammer, where its famed sound track will be enhanced by the Billy Wilder Theater’s pristine sound system. Julie Andrews stars as an Austrian governess who restores joy to seven young charges—and to film audiences. (1965, Dir. Robert Wise, DCP, color, 174 min.)

*All ages are welcome. Feel free to take a break with infants and toddlers in the theater lobby. 

Family Flicks Film Series

UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hammer Museum have teamed up for a matinee screening series of new and classic family-friendly films from around the world.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.

Hammer Kids is made possible through the generosity of the Anthony & Jeanne Pritzker Family Foundation. 

Hammer Kids has also received funding from supporters and friends of the Hammer Museum’s Kids’ Art Museum Project (K.A.M.P.), an annual family fundraiser. 

Additional support has been provided by Resnick Foundation, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, the Elizabeth Bixby Janeway Foundation, and the Art4Moore Fund of the Tides Foundation.
