Scorsese’s ‘The Irishman’ will screen at Broadway’s Belasco Theatre all November
Martin Scorsese's new film The Irishman, which stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci and premiered recently at the New York Film Festival, will be in select theaters nationwide starting November 1 and then hits Netflix on November 27. In NYC, the film will be playing a special, one-month run at Broadway's Belasco Theater starting November 1. “We’ve lost so many wonderful theaters in New York City in recent years, including single house theaters like the Ziegfeld and the Paris,” said Scorsese in a statement. “The opportunity to recreate that singular experience at the historic Belasco Theatre is incredibly exciting.” The film will play in Broadway show fashion, with eight screenings a week, and none on Mondays. Tickets will be $15 plus surcharges and available soon via Telecharge.
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in Martin Scorsese’s THE IRISHMAN, an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century. Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.

Starting in February, the Belasco will be home to The Girl from North Country, the Depression-era musical that uses Bob Dylan songs to tell its story.
