Turner Classic Movies: TCM is coming to Buffalo!
On Saturday, October 21st, join us as the North Park Theatre proudly hosts TCM’s Ben Mankiewicz and TCM Backlot for a special presentation of the 1984 classic THE NATURAL with director Barry Levinson LIVE and IN-PERSON!
This historic event will be FREE and open to the public. All guests will receive a free popcorn and drink. Seating is not guaranteed, so guests are advised to arrive early.
Filmed in the summer and fall of 1983 right here in Buffalo, NY, THE NATURAL endures almost 35 years later as a touching love letter to our city.
As Production Executive Patrick Markey once remarked: “Buffalo was a city of great wealth in the late ’20s and early ’30s, and much of its architecture is beautiful. We kept finding places that were perfect for our script.”
Starring Robert Redford, Glenn Close, Robert Duvall, Kim Basinger, Richard Farnsworth and Wilford Brimley.
Directed by Barry Levinson, with a timeless score by Randy Newman.
After a hotly contested vote, Buffalo was chosen to host this event by members of TCM Backlot, the Ultimate Turner Classic Movies Fan Club. Backlot Members were impressed with our city’s unique ties to film history, its vibrant film culture, and, with MARSHALL soon in theaters and THE TRUE ADVENTURES OF WOLFBOY on the way, our rapidly expanding presence on the big screen.
Special thanks to Toni Ruberto of The Buffalo News!
