This happened recently at the fantastic screening and pre-show of the James Bond film Casino Royale live in concert at The Sony Centre for the Performing Arts. During the pre-show fellow movie lover, Richard Crouse, Toronto Film Critic and TV Host interviewed Evan Mitchell, Symphony Conductor in a lively discussion about coordinating the orchestra with the images of the film.
Richard went on to say how powerful it was to see a movie in this live concert setting because of the enthusiasm expressed together by the audience. It is a unique cinematic experience and social gathering!
The Sony Centre and I knew exactly what Richard meant because the audiences are very open to cheering and applauding at triumphant scenes or exhilarating musical moments. So I loved joining in with the applause after the first big orchestral chase scene or seeing Bond win a big hand at poker. And I had to laugh at hearing the clapping and cheers when Bond came out of the ocean in his tight swim trunks! Everyone was just having a great time while listening to outstanding live music.

And these character strengths are not just in the fight scenes but in his challenge of wits during the high-stakes poker game with Le Chiffre. Bond also demonstrates his keen analytical training in reading people with a playful and engaging first meeting with his strong-willed and beautiful partner Vesper Lynd (Eva Green).
