Universal Pictures, Screenvision Media and the Tribeca Film Festival announced the return of Scarface to movie theatres nationwide, in celebration of its 35th anniversary. For the first time, film fans outside of New York will also have the chance to view a Tribeca Film Festival retrospective event on the big screen.

Screenvision will show the 1983 crime classic followed by the Tribeca Film Festival post-screening conversation, during which Scarface director Brian De Palma and actors Al Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer and Steven Bauer reunited to discuss the film and its lasting impact. Screenings will take place at select theatres in top cites nationwide on June 10, 11 and 13.

“Scarface is a timeless film that has influenced pop culture in so many ways over the last 35 years. We’re thrilled to partner with Universal Pictures and Tribeca Film Festival to bring it back to the big screen in celebration of its anniversary,” said Darryl Schaffer, executive VP of operations and exhibitor relations at Screenvision Media. “The Tribeca Film Festival talk was an important commemoration of the film. We’re excited to extend it to the big screen and provide fans a behind-the-scenes insight into what production was like in the 1980s.”

“Tribeca has a rich history of producing legendary reunion events. We are thrilled to be able to replicate the Festival experience with audiences across the country. Our gratitude to Screenvision and Universal,” said Paula Weinstein, executive VP, Tribeca Enterprises. “Scarface has had a strong influence on popular culture and reuniting the cast for the 35th anniversary was an evening not to forget.”
