Whether you are watching a movie at the theater, a drive-in, or at the Tribeca Film Festival, there are a few things you should know before you go. Whether it’s the best places to go or which films to see, these tips will help make your next movie night a success.
Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman
Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” will be the opening night film of the 57th New York Film Festival, which runs September 27 through October 13. The film stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, and is based on a non-fiction book by Charles Brandt.
For the last decade, the project has been in development. It finally started principal photography in September 2017, in Williston Park, Long Island. However, it was deemed late due to the complexity of the effects work.
Scorsese used an expensive de-aging process for the actors, but said it was not a simple matter of making their faces look younger. He described the intensive effects process as more than just giving them a sexier appearance.
Playing Frank Sheeran
After several years in post-production, Scorsese’s “The Irishman” has finally been completed. The film, which is slated to open on November 1st, will be released by Netflix. In the film, Robert De Niro is playing Frank Sheeran, a mob hitman who is rumored to have committed more than 25 murders.
During the film’s post-production period, several actors including Pacino and De Niro were digitally altered. As a result, a major Oscar buzz was generated for the film.
Ahead of the film’s release, Netflix announced that it had ponied up to fund the movie after the other studios failed. It was the first time that the streaming service had commissioned a feature.
Outdoor screening program
This year’s Tribeca Film Festival has announced its lineup of films and events. There will be a variety of classics, family-friendly films, and world premieres. The festival will also feature talks and demonstrations.
Tribeca will be held in New York City and its surrounding boroughs. In addition to the outdoor screenings, the festival will also host community screenings at a variety of locations, including Brookfield Place, Waterfront Plaza at Brooklyn’s Pier 57, and Spring Studios on 50 Varick Street in Manhattan.
The festival has a focus on independent filmmakers and LGBTQ+ issues. Some of the highlights of the 2022 Tribeca Festival include live concerts, performances, and demonstrations. As well, the lineup features 151 films from 40 countries.
The leading international
Founded in 2002, the Tribeca Film Festival is an annual film event that takes place in New York City. It has grown into one of the leading international showcases for independent cinema. Usually taking place in May, the Tribeca festival has expanded to include outdoor screenings, as well as community screenings.
With its return as an in-person event, the festival is also highlighting the importance of storytelling. During the festival, there will be free outdoor screenings of family-friendly films at Pier 57.
The 2022 Tribeca Film Festival will be held from June 8 through June 19. There will be 12 days of events across the city, and the festival will offer a wide variety of genres.
Drive-in theaters are a great way to enjoy movies. While other theaters charge you a bunch of money, drive-in theaters usually have prices as low as $3 or $4. You can also get a free ticket if your kids are under five.
Drive-ins are making a comeback. Thanks to social distancing guidelines, they are getting a second look. They are also safer than most theaters. Moreover, they are affordable for families.
The first drive-ins were built in New Jersey in 1930. In fact, they are still a favorite hangout for moviegoers across the country. Today, you can find drive-in theaters in almost any town or city. Some are full-time, while others are pop-ups. Nevertheless, the majority of drive-ins remain open, with about 305 theaters in the U.S. and Canada.
Drive-ins were also cheaper to build than in-door theaters. This led to the growth of a booming industry. There were about 400 drive-ins open in the US and Canada in 1958. However, this number began to decline in the late 1960s. As the popularity of other types of entertainment rose, the demand for drive-ins decreased.
