The Long Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit dedicated to broadening the appreciation and enhancing the enjoyment of the cultural arts.



The Long Center presents Star Wars: A New Hope, screening plus live score featuring the Austin Symphony Orchestra, October 11 – 12 in Dell Hall.

John Williams’ legendary Star Wars score didn’t just enhance a great story, it gave life to an entire galaxy. From “Binary Sunset” to “Leia’s Theme” and the “Throne Room,” the themes of A New Hope—celebrating its 40th Anniversary year—ushered in a renaissance of film music, the likes of which Hollywood hadn’t seen in decades. Williams created fully-formed characters and a compelling narrative in which millions of fans could lose themselves without ever having to open their eyes.

Join the Long Center for this special presentation of Star Wars: A New Hope, a screening of the film brought to life with live score featuring the Austin Symphony Orchestra in honor of the legendary film’s 40th Anniversary.

VIP Meet & Greet tickets are available! This package includes a post-show Meet & Greet and Q&A with Conductor Constantine Kitsopoulos and Technical Director Luke Dennis. Together, Kitsopoulos, a conductor with experiences in opera, theatre, and Broadway across the country, and Dennis will discuss the intricacies of creating a successful live to picture experience and tricks of the trade used to bring A New Hope to life on stage.

Live-To-Picture is a celebration of the music and movies we love, an expansion of the cinematic experiences we crave. The heartfelt, the experimental, the fantastical, the brooding–the combination of sight and sound in a darkened theater is unlike any other. With our partners, we’re bringing you the best of sound and screen in live, multi-media experience so that we can relive the anticipation and the awe all over again. Together. See the rest of our Live-To-Picture series happening this season, including Manual Cinema: Lula Del Ray.
