Big Picture Night at the Bowl Featuring 20th Century Fox

My last night of the season at the Hollywood Bowl was The Big Picture: Films of 20th Century Fox. This is the yearly night where the Bowl orchestra plays along to clips from films of one designated studio.

The opener was a montage of all the great Fox pictures, from the Sound of Music to Big.

Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend was my favorite segment of the evening.

There was a dedicated montage to Slumdog Millionaire.

And one set to Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge.

A neat highlight was that of Edward Scissorhands.

The second half of the show had several segments dedicated to sci fi. That's really not my genre, but I appreciated the historic moments.

It was really cool to see the clips from Planet of the Apes. The pace was so quick I had trouble catching a clear frame with my camera.

I had only budgeted for a few concerts this year, but I had a lot of fun at the ones I chose. Hopefully next year I can go to more than I did this summer.
