Martin Scorsese Joins American Cinematheque Salute to Irwin Winkler

The American Cinematheque will host a three-day salute to producer Irwin Winkler, culminating with an onstage conversation between him and Martin Scorsese that will include clips from their upcoming “Silence.”

The tribute will run Dec. 1-3, showing three of the collaborations between the director and producer. “Raging Bull” will show on Dec. 1 at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, with “Goodfellas” screening the following day at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica. The 1977 romantic drama “New York, New York” will play in the afternoon on Dec. 3 at the Egyptian, while the talks with Scorsese begin there at 4:30 p.m. that day.

Tickets go on sale starting Tuesday at Fandango.com or at the Egyptian Theatre box office.

In their onstage conversation, Scorsese and Winkler will discuss “Silence,” and unveil footage from the Paramount release, which opens Dec. 23 in Los Angeles. Scorsese has wanted to film the adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s novel for 28 years.

Aside from the three movies screening and “Silence,” Winkler and Scorsese collaborated on the 2013 “The Wolf of Wall Street,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio, which earned five Oscar nominations. Winkler and Robert Chartoff won the best picture Academy Award for 1976’s “Rocky.” Winkler also was a producer on six other “Rocky” films, including last year’s “Creed.” His other credits include the classic “They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?” as well as 1974’s “The Gambler” and its 2014 remake.

    Film Review: 'Stuck'

    A stalled New York City subway carriage serves as a toe-tapping musical Petri dish for six socioeconomically diverse souls in the unique stage-to-screen musical adaptation “Stuck.” Sharing a stylistic template with its 2016 left-coast cousin “La La Land” (which it predated Off-Broadway by a good four years), the film’s 2017 copyright suggests a missed opportunity [...]

Given the extended U.S. title “A Heathen’s Curse” to underline saleable supernatural elements, this enigmatic folktale-cum-horror is [...]
