The Tower Theatre is alive …

… with “The Sound of Music.” The art-house theater, 876 E. 900 South, will be hosting screenings of the beloved, Academy Award-winning 1965 movie musical this weekend.

In fact, audience participation for the screenings — Friday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 2:30 p.m. — is encouraged, and the event is being subtitled “The Sound of Music: Sing With Maria.” There will be prizes for creative costumes, gift bags, complimentary tea and cookies, and a pre-show featuring some local talent.

Tickets for these special screenings are $15. Proceeds will benefit the Salt Lake Film Society’s family programs, including “Big Pictures Little People,” which brings summer films to disadvantaged youth.
