Festival and film celebrate 25 years with flashback screening at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (November 20, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival is turning 25 this year, and to celebrate, we are rolling back the clock and bringing encore screenings of hit films from 25 years ago to the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on the 25th of each month! And better yet … we are rolling back the tickets to the admission price of 25 years ago for these special events: just $4.25 each!
This special year-long celebration continues with the anniversary screening of “Bullets Over Broadway” on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“This is our way of celebrating our 25th Anniversary Season all year long and a way for us to say THANK YOU to this community for supporting our festival for 25 years,” said executive director Patrick Schweiss.
“Bullets Over Broadway” won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Dianne Wiest and was nominated for six other Oscars for Best Director (Woody Allen), Best Screenplay, Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Tilly), Best Supporting Actor (Chazz Palminteri), Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction.
Experience “Bullets Over Broadway” again or for the first time with enhanced picture and sound.
Struggling 1920s playwright David Shayne (John Cusack), having failed to secure financing for his latest work, reluctantly makes a deal with mob boss Nick Valenti (Joe Viterelli): a Broadway debut with the chance to direct, as long as Nick’s flibbertigibbet girlfriend, Olive (Jennifer Tilly), plays one of the lead roles. As Olive and star Helen Sinclair (Dianne Wiest) attempt to upstage each other, Olive’s gangland bodyguard Cheech (Chazz Palminteri) starts suggesting changes to David’s script.
The all-star cast also features Rob Reiner, Mary-Louise Parker, Harvey Fierstein and Tracy Ullman.
The 25th Anniversary screenings of “Bullets Over Broadway” are sponsored by the Goldenstein Gallery with additional support from the City of Sedona.
“Bullets Over Broadway” — the 25th Anniversary Celebration — will show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. Tickets are rolled back to the price of 25 years ago: only $4.25 each. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177.
