The seats were OK, left of orchestra, not the best but for the price, we were happy. The same tickets were being sold for $68 on Gilt (Overpriced) City and we can't thank Goldstar enough for offering a much better deal. The music was fantastic and...continued

This was a very enjoyable concert.
Certinly not for classical music snobs, it was designed to show off the music of some Hichcock movies with very informative notes read by Alec Baldwin.
Some scenes brought the audience to the edge of their...continued

Very thrilling to see the movie with the philharmonic orchestra live. The music becomes more powerful and beautiful live. What a treat!

I thought the performance would be music from films - not a showing of the actual film. Space Odyssey 2001 was an awful film choice.

I went to see "2001: A Space Odyssey", one of my favorite all-time movies, at the NY Philharmonic with the score played live by the orchestra. I was an aerospace engineering student at Cornell, working on a project for NASA, when I first saw it. ...continued

I could not believe how lucky I was with my random seat. I was exactly where I could want to be. Maybe ten rows back from the super ideal spot, but very very happy. The whole event was excellent. They couldn't played a little louder, the screen...continued

It was a fantastic experience, to see clips from Hitchcock's movies on a huge screen, and hear the magnificent orchestral sounds at the same time - WOW!
Too bad that I can't see Space Odyssey since I'll be at JALC both Friday and Saturday...continued

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience. This was one of the most interesting events I have ever attended at Lincoln Center (and among the only viable ways to get through a Kubrick film). The score from 2001: A space odyssey is so iconic and...continued

We loved it! The big screen with some highlights of Hitchcock films teamed with the orchestra music was a winner! Would go again in a heartbeat !

I loved this show. I went alone, wondereing if I'd find mysel in an empty concert hall. Wrong! It looked nearly sold out. I hadn't realized movie music - or Alfred Hitchcock's film scores - were so popular.
our evening's host however was Sam...continued

If you have been to LC, you know there is nothing to complain about as far as the venue. Not having ever seen the film, I was disappointed at the collective amount of time the NY Phil actually played - maybe 20 minutes? I would not say the full...continued

Excellent film clips and musical accompaniment. A little difficult to see on the orchestra level due to tall folks with big hair.

The seats to The Art of the Score at Avery Fisher Hall, celebrating the musical scores for Alfred Hitchcock movies, were great. No problem picking up tickets at Will Call window. The concert was wonderful. I am amazed Groupon was able to offer...continued
