‘Night’ takes flight at Gotham preem

NEW YORK — It was dusk in Gotham as industry types gathered for the premiere of Spelling Films/Paramount’s “Night Falls on Manhattan” at Sony Theaters Lincoln Square on March 12.

Viacom honcho Sumner Redstone, Paramount topper Sherry Lansing and Spelling Entertainment prexy Mitch Horowitz turned out for the screening and party following at “21,” as did the film’s director Sidney Lumet, producers Thom Mount and Josh Kramer, and stars Andy Garcia, Ron Liebman, James Gandolfini and Sheik Mahmud-Bey.

Consummate New Yorker Lumet received a special honor at the bash: A mayor’s rep officially proclaimed May 12 as “Sidney Lumet Day'” in New York. Comic Alan King presented the honor to Lumet, who jokingly complained that his day was nearly over before it had begun, as it was already past 10 when the ceremony took place.

Notable guests included Home Shopping Network chairman Barry Diller, directors Milo O’Shea and Alan Pakula, thesps Armand Assante and Aidan Quinn, and Nora Ephron, Nick Pileggi and Empire State Development Corp. chairman Charles Gargano.
