What do John Williams' Star Wars theme, Alan Silvestri's compositions in The Avengers, and Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard's score for Gladiator all have in common? When you hear each and every one, they instantly transport you into the world of their respective films. That's what a good piece of movie music does — whether or not the accompanying images are playing in front of you.

On Saturday, April 24, all of the above pieces will also echo through QPAC's Concert Hall, with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra putting on a show dedicated to movie heroes and heroines. You won't be watching the relevant flicks, but rather soaking in their sounds as they're all played live.

Other highlights include tracks from movies as diverse as My Neighbour Totoro, The Incredibles and Captain Marvel — and The Imitation Game, The Man From Snowy River and Miss Marple as well.

QSO will be performing two concerts, at 3pm and 7.30pm. And to get you in the mood, here's an excerpt from the always-enchanting Totoro soundtrack:
