You Can Call Me Al

When an actor has enjoyed the kind of career that the one and only Al Pacino has to his name, there are many ways to celebrate. Or, to be more accurate, there's a plethora of films to watch — because the best way to pay tribute to the Oscar-, Emmy- and Tony-winner, formidable thespian force and one of the greatest talents ever is to bask in him doing what he does best in his movies.

Enter You Can Call Me Al, a ten-film retrospective at Golden Age Cinema & Bar that does have a reason behind it, but doesn't need one. Marking the 50th anniversary of exceptional crime drama Serpico, which is home to one of Pacino's all-time best performances, is a worthy cause, of course — but so is revelling in many of his flicks.

The season kicks off on Friday, November 10 with a session of The Godfather, another stunning classic, before popping up on various dates until Friday, December 15 with The Godfather Part II, Scarface, Scarecrow, Glengarry Glen Ross, Heat, Carlito's Way, Dog Day Afternoon and, yes, Serpico in a new 4K restoration. With such an impressive roster of films and performances, picking just one screening to attend is virtually impossible.

Also on the lineup, and fittingly given that Golden Age recently ran a William Friedkin retrospective as well: the filmmaker's Pacino-starring thriller Cruising.
