We celebrated our 1st year anniversary benefit with a full house of cinephiles, loyal supporters, family and friends. There was so much love and support for New Plaza Cinema, and it make us all very happy!
What an amazing evening we all shared. Thank you so much for supporting us, for coming out and celebrating film with us. Without your support none of this is possible so thank you very much.
Dan Talbot, the founder of Lincoln Plaza, and Bernardo Bertolucci, would both have been very proud and would have loved the event. We’re sure they were smiling down on us last night.
Among the many significant contributions the Talbots made to cinema, they are credited with introducing Bertolucci’s films to America. So in honor of their legacy, and the great director, we screened Bertolucci’s masterful 1970 film, The Conformist.
And following the screening Toby Talbot, the lifelong partner of Dan Talbot was interviewed by award-winning film critic, essayist and former NY Film Festival selection committee member Phillip Lopate.
They discussed the importance of Lincoln Plaza to our cultural life, the achievements of New Plaza in enriching our community, and Toby shared wonderful stories and anecdotes with us of her and Dan’s very special relationship with Bertolucci.
THE EVENT WAS SOLD-OUT. But if you would like to make a donation, that would be most appreciated.
KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR FURTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS.
WE ARE WORKING VERY HARD TO MAKE SURE WE’LL BE BACK ON A SCREEN SOON.
