Museum sets bigscreen run for ‘Sopranos’

First two seasons of skein to be screened

Recognizing the landmark status in TV history of a certain cable mob series, Gotham’s American Museum of the Moving Image will present the first two seasons of HBO’s “The Sopranos” on the bigscreen on weekends through June 25.

All 26 episodes will be shown at the museum’s Riklis Theater with two episodes shown per screening. The screenings will be the museum’s first retrospective to focus specifically on a television series.

“In general, it’s hard to get people to come out here (in Astoria, N.Y.) to see a TV series, but with the ‘Sopranos’ it’s something special,” David Schwartz, the museum’s chief curator of film, told Daily Variety. “Jeff Bewkes (chairman and CEO of HBO) is one of our trustees and was very supportive of the museum.

“What interested us is the interrelationship between film and television and (‘Sopranos’) has a lot of qualities you would find in a feature film. This is also a great opportunity to see a made-for-TV series in a theatrical setting.”

The American Museum of Moving Image houses the nation’s largest collection of motion picture and TV artifacts. Dedicated to educating the public about the art, history and technology of film, television and digital media, the museum presents over 300 films annually, often including discussions with filmmakers.

This year the museum coordinated the New York regional finals for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Student Academy Awards, and presented the Indie New York and the Complete David Lynch series.
