Some of the greatest motion pictures would be only half as good without the accompaniment of their respective musical scores. John Williams' work alone accounts for the lion's share of such memorable compositions — Star Wars, Indiana Jones and others. Celebrating the unseen contributions of modern cinema, the Richmond Symphony, conducted by Arthur Post, will perform familiar works heard throughout American film. With the Flying Theme from “E.T.,” the chariot race of “Ben Hur,” and the theme of “The Magnificent Seven,” try to visualize the movies at the Landmark Theater on Saturday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m. $35-$60. 788-1212. — Mike Hilleary
