'Scarface' returns to South Florida theaters for 35th anniversary

SouthFlorida.com

Say hello to “Scarface” again.

As part of its 35th anniversary, the Brian De Palma cult classic will be screened at several South Florida theaters June 10 and June 13.

Following the screening, those theaters will show a discussion with the director De Palma and the movie’s stars Al Pacino, Steven Bauer and Michelle Pfeiffer that was filmed at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City in April.

The screenings will be at nine Regal theaters in South Florida — Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Sunrise, Miami Beach, Cutler Bay, Kendall and Royal Palm Beach. (For tickets and more info, visit www.scarface35.com.)

South Floridians may recall when production crews arrived in April 1983 to shoot scenes in Miami and Miami Beach, including at the Fontainebleau and along Ocean Drive.

Pacino played the foul-mouthed Tony Montana and the movie followed his rise from Cuban dishwasher to cocaine lord. Bauer played his younger sidekick Manolo and Pfeiffer a cocaine addict married to Montana.

“Scarface is a timeless film that has influenced pop culture in so many ways over the last 35 years,” said Darryl Schaffer, executive vice president of operations and exhibitor relations at Screenvision Media. “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.”
