Aedín marks the 93rd birthday of Angela Lansbury with music from a selection of her memorable roles in Sweeney Todd, Beauty and the Beast, Mame, Death on the Nile and Murder, She Wrote, including clips from the public interview Aedín conducted with Lansbury as part of the Dublin Film Festival in 2016. Favourite scores too from The Remains of the Day, The Shape of Water, Jane Eyre, There Will Be Blood and E.T. 

Sunday October 27th

With Halloween just around the corner, Aedín includes the creepy, eerie scores from Psycho and Bram Stoker’s Dracula this afternoon as well as the extraordinary 2015 film ‘The Childhood of a Leader’ in which Scott Walker’s big, brash and bold soundtrack really makes a statement. On a cheerier note, hit songs from Annie, Gypsy, Camelot, La Vie en Rose, A Little Night Music and Hairspray.
