Redmond Barry (Ryan O’Neal) is a young, roguish Irishman who’s determined, in any way, to make a life for himself as a wealthy nobleman. Enlisting in the British Army and fighting in Europe’s Seven Years War, Barry deserts, then joins the Prussian army, gets promoted to the rank of a spy, and becomes a pupil to a Chevalier and con artist/gambler. Barry then lies, dupes, duels and seduces his way up the social ladder, entering into a lustful but loveless marriage to a wealthy countess named Lady Lyndon (Marisa Berenson). He takes the name of Barry Lyndon, settles in England with wealth and power beyond his wildest dreams, before eventually falling into ruin.

BARRY LYNDON’s Oscar winning soundtrack features Irish traditional music and military marches, along with baroque and classical themes by Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach, and Paisiello – most notably, sumptuous interpretations of Handel’s Sarabande and Schubert’s Piano Trio in E-Flat Major, D. 929. The sublime score will be performed by the 50-piece Wordless Music Orchestra, and conducted by Ryan McAdams. BARRY LYNDON will be projected on the huge, glorious screen of Kings Theatre (1027 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn), Brooklyn’s premier movie palace and one of the five ‘Loew’s Wonder Theatres,’ opened in 1929 and magnificently restored in 2015.
