“Silverado” (1985), writer-director Lawrence Kasdan’s Western starring Kevin Costner in his breakthrough role, will be this season’s third CSO at the Movies presentation on May 6. It replaces the previously announced “Hooray for Hollywood” program, which had to be canceled due to film-licensing issues.
Led by Richard Kaufman, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra will perform Bruce Broughton’s Oscar-nominated score as the film is projected above the stage. Kaufman and Broughton also will participate in a pre-concert discussion, open to all ticket-holders, at 7 p.m. in Symphony Center’s Grainger Ballroom.
“Silverado” follows a misfit band of friends who ride into a town to deliver justice. Co-starring Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn, Danny Glover and John Cleese, it marked the first Western for Costner, who would later go on to specialize in the genre, with roles in “Wyatt Earp” (1994), “Open Range” (2003) and “Dances With Wolves” (which he also directed and won an Oscar for his efforts).
Tickets are now on sale and may be purchased at cso.org, by phone at (312) 294-3000, or in person at the Symphony Center box office, 220 S. Michigan.
