SA Symphony Plays Music from Home Alone
Thursday, Dec. 22-Friday, Dec. 23

What’s up with John Hughes centering his movies around privileged white american suburbia? Amiright? Falling down a rabbit hole of 80’s movies recently, I started to notice similar themes: anxious white wealthy teenagers, unavailable parents, and radical soundtracks that really gave these films life.  While Kevin Mccallister (played by Macaulay Culkin) is just a kid in the movie, Home Alone manages to fit all of these components, including a bad-ass soundtrack scored by Star Wars composer John Williams.  For two nights, our very own SA Symphony will be serving us memories while they play songs from a movie that hit theaters 26 years ago. 7pm, $26.75, Majestic, 224 E. Houston St, Empire Theater, 226 N. St. Mary’s — CC
