The hills of Prospect Park are going to be alive with Robert Wise’s Oscar-winning 1965 film, "The Sound of Music," on July 29 at 7:30 pm. According to Celebrate Brooklyn’s Jack Walsh, the film will be shown in Cinemascope on the band shell’s 50-foot-wide, 22-foot-tall screen "as it was meant to be seen."

Watch as Maria (played by Golden Globe-winner Julie Andrews, at left) leaves the convent to be governess to the unruly brood of seven children belonging to Capt. Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer). She tames them with, well, the sound of music, just in time to plan their escape from the Germans who are invading Austria on the eve of World War II.

The screening will be preceded by a performance by drummer Kenny Wollesen’s marching band SLAM.

The Prospect Park band shell is located at Ninth Street at Prospect Park West in Park Slope. Admission is free but a $3 donation is suggested. For more information, visit the Web site or call (718) 855-7882.
