“GoodFellas,” the 1990 Martin Scorsese film that starred Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta, will close the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival with a screening of the movie’s new 25th anniversary remaster.
Following the movie, the film’s cast and creators will reunite for an onstage conversation with Jon Stewart.
The new “GoodFellas” remaster is derived from a 4k scan of the original camera negative, and has been overseen by Scorsese. Based on Nicholas Pileggi’s nonfiction book “Wiseguy,” the movie follows the rise and fall of three mobsters over 30 years. De Niro, the co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, stars alongside Liotta, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco and Paul Sorvino.
“GoodFellas” wraps up the 14th edition of the Tribeca festival, which launches this year with the premiere of new “Saturday Night Live” documentary “Live From New York!” The “GoodFellas” screening and subsequent discussion will take place April 26 at the Beacon Theater, the Upper West Side auditorium that became a Tribeca venue when the Beacon’s owner, Madison Square Garden Company, took a 50% stake in the festival.
The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival runs April 15-26. Specific participants in the post-screening talk after “GoodFellas” remain to be set.
