HBO premieres ‘Empire Falls’ miniseries

HBO premiered “Empire Falls” Monday in the grand theater of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with a party following in the Temple of Dendur, where guests proceeded through galleries of Egyptian mummies to view the Maine setting of Richard Russo’s Pulitzer-winning novel. Before the screening, Callender introduced the makers of the film, and they were warmly applauded as they bowed from their seats. Paul Newman, executive producer of the mini, star and generally accepted driving force behind the project, was introduced to a standing ovation – and that was even before the film rolled. Variety’s Army Archerd asked Newman if this was, as has been reported, his swansong – if he was “retiring.” “I’ve been `retiring’ since 1992,” he laughed.
