Martin Scorsese’s film “The Irishman” will be screened at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway for one month.
The film, starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, will be screened at the Belasco from Nov. 1 through Dec. 1. This is the first time a film has been shown at the Belasco, which is landmarked.
Screenings will be conducted along the typical Broadway schedule, with eight performances a week, Tuesday through Sunday evenings, with matinees on Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets, which go on sale next week, will be $15 plus processing fees and will be available through Telecharge.com.
Netflix will be bringing in its own equipment to screen the movie. The film will be released globally on Netflix on November 27, 2019.
“We’ve lost so many wonderful theaters in New York City in recent years, including single house theaters like the Ziegfeld and the Paris,” Martin Scorsese said in the press release. “The opportunity to recreate that singular experience at the historic Belasco Theatre is incredibly exciting. Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber and their team at Netflix have continued to find creative ways to make this picture a special event for audiences and I’m thankful for their innovation and commitment.”
“It’s an immense honor for ‘The Irishman’ to be welcomed to the Belasco – an iconic and historic landmark fit for Scorsese’s latest cinematic achievement,” said Scott Stuber, head of Netflix Film.
The Belasco Theatre is currently unoccupied, after the run of “Network” concluded on June 8. It awaits the entrance of “Girl from the North Country” which begins previews on Feb. 7, 2020.
