Posted by


FANS of  ‘Home Alone’ will be delighted to hear that a special screening of the family classic with a 100-piece orchestra is coming to Kerry in December.

John Williams’ score will be performed live to picture by The Orchestra of Ireland and a choir at the INEC in Killarney on December 1 with tickets going on sale this Friday.

The movie was re-released in cinemas during the Christmas season over the past few years and proved very popular but this will be a different experience.

Speaking about the event, John Williams said: “Ever since Home Alone appeared, it has held a unique place in the affections of a very broad public. Director Chris Columbus brought a uniquely fresh and innocent approach to this delightful story, and the film has deservedly become a perennial at Holiday time.

“I took great pleasure in composing the score for the film, and I am especially delighted that the magnificent Orchestra of Ireland has agreed to perform the music in this very special live presentation of the movie.

“I know I speak for everyone connected with the making of the film in saying that we are greatly honoured by this event… and I hope that the audience will experience the renewal of joy that the film brings with it, each and every year.”
