Beloved Sports Movie ‘Rudy’ to Receive Live-to-Picture Concert Treatment (Exclusive)

A beloved sports movie will receive the live-to-picture concert treatment when “Rudy” is screened on Nov. 10 at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium with an 80-piece orchestra performing Jerry Goldsmith’s original score.

Star Sean Astin, director David Anspaugh, writer Angelo Pizzo, producer Cary Woods and Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger (the real Rudy) are all slated to appear in a pre-show panel discussing the film and its music.

Justin Freer will conduct the 80-member Hollywood Chamber Orchestra. His CineConcerts organization (in partnership with Sony Pictures) is behind the event.

The 1993 movie – which told the true story of a young man who, against the odds, realizes his dream of playing football for the University of Notre Dame – ranks no. 54 on the American Film Institute’s list of “most inspiring films.”

A portion of the proceeds will go to the scholarship fund of the Notre Dame Alumni Club of Los Angeles and to Southern California high school sports programs.
