SYRFILMFEST PRESENTS COPPOLA AT THE PALACE THEATER!
Dessert and champagne, music by Crystal Gayle and Tom Waits and Coppola’s only musical – could there be a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day and support SYRFILM? The SYRFILM organization that brings year-round programming to CNY will present the Francis Ford Coppola musical One From the Heart at the Palace Theater on Sunday, February 13 at 4pm. Tickets for the event are $10 (film only, available at the door) or $20 for film, dessert and champagne (reservations: 315-443-8826.)
After completing Apocalypse Now, director Francis Ford Coppola initially planned his next picture to be an intimate romantic musical to be shot on a low budget in Las Vegas. Three years later, OneFrom the Heart had become a big budget spectacular, shot at his newly opened Zeotrope Studios on strikingly stylized sets and costing $27million. The story stars Frederick Forrest (Hank) and Teri Garr (Franny), a working class couple whose relationship has fallen into a rut. They both set off to find new partners and meet Leila and Ray (Natasha Kinsky and Raul Julia) a high-wire artist and would be actor. But Franny and Hank still love each other, so will that love bring them back together? Singer/songwriter Tom Waits received an Oscar nomination for his widely acclaimed song score, performed with country crooner Crystal Gayle.
For its second annual Valentine’s Day Fundraiser event, SYRFILM will show the film in 35mm, followed by a dessert buffet – including champagne. Desserts will be made and served by members of the SYRFILM board of directors. In addition, the Stickley Collector’s Cabinet winner will be selected. There’s still time to get your ticket for the drawing -and support SYRFILM – by sending your check ($25 each ticket) to the SYRFILM office, 500 South Warren St. Hotel Syracuse, Syracuse, NY 13202.SYRFILM is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization producing film events for all ages.
