AFI's 100 YEARS OF MUSICALS


AFI's 25 GREATEST MOVIE MUSICALS OF ALL TIME

The AFI's 100 Years of Film Scores is a list of the 25 American movie musicals of all time.

The Big Picture – AFI's Greatest Movie Musicals, was a one night only live performance the Hollywood Bowl produced by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association in cooperation with AFI.

Spanning a century of film music and counting down from 25 to number one throughout the evening, Director John Mauceri and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra performed excerpts from each of the winning musicals, many of them accompanied by favorite movie scenes shown on the Bowl's big video screens. This was the second time an AFI countdown was revealed before a live audience.
