Cinematheque honors Pacino

Gala to fete thesp Oct. 21

HOLLYWOOD — Al Pacino will be honored at the American Cinematheque’s 20th annual benefit gala, to be held Oct. 21 at the Beverly Hilton.

Board chairman Rick Nicita said the eight-time Oscar nominee, who won for “Scent of a Woman,” was the unanimous choice of the selection committee. “His stardom has shone brightly through four decades of memorable performances,” he said.

Since 1986, the American Cinematheque has annually honored an artist who is “fully engaged in his or her work and is committed to making a significant contribution to the art of the motion picture.”

Pacino won an Emmy in 2004 for his portrayal of Roy Cohn in “Angels in America.”

Nicita said, “Rather than rest on his laurels, Al Pacino continues to challenge himself and to thrill us with more bold and daring work.”

Pacino recently wrapped director D.J. Caruso’s “2 for the Money,” set for release Oct. 7.

AMC will air the tribute in January. Org will announce co-chairs and presenters as the date approaches.

Past honorees include Denzel Washington, Tom Cruise, Steven Spielberg and Nicole Kidman.
