‘DAVID MAMET, A LIFE IN FILM’:
MOVING IMAGE PRESENTS A RARE PERSONAL APPEARANCE BY
THE DIRECTOR/SCREENWRITER/PLAYWRIGHT

At New School Tishman Auditorium, on October 13, 2010, 7:00 p.m.

David Mamet may be best known as one of America’s most influential and important contemporary playwrights (American Buffalo, Glengarry Glen Ross, Speed-The-Plow). Yet he has also had a remarkable career in film, as a director and screenwriter. On Wednesday, October 13, Museum of the Moving Image will present “David Mamet: A Life in Film,” featuring a very rare New York appearance by Mamet to discuss his career in film accompanied by clips. The event, which takes place at the New School’s Tishman Auditorium, coincides with the Broadway premiere of A Life in the Theatre, and will be moderated by Chief Curator David Schwartz.

Tickets for “David Mamet, A Life in Film” are $18 public/$12 for Museum members (Free for Sponsor-level and above). Advance tickets may be purchased online at www.movingimage.us or by calling 718.777.6800.
The Tishman Auditorium at the New School is located at 66 West 12th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues), Manhattan.

Mamet’s A Life in the Theatre will have its Broadway premiere on October 12 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, starring Sir Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight and directed by Neil Pepe. The play was previously presented in New York in an Off Broadway production in 1977.

About Museum of the Moving Image
Founded in 1981, Museum of the Moving Image is the only institution in the United States that deals comprehensively with the art, technology, and social impact of film, television, and digital media. Housed in a building owned by the City of New York, which is the site of the former Astoria Studio, originally constructed as Paramount’s East Coast production facility in 1920, the Museum boasts the nation’s largest collection of moving image artifacts and screens hundreds of films annually. Its exhibitions—including the core exhibition, Behind the Screen—are noted for their integration of material objects, computer-based interactive experiences, and audiovisual presentations. A major expansion and renovation of the Museum’s facility is currently underway. Designed by architect Thomas Leeser, the project will double the size of the Museum and includes a new 264-seat theater, a 68-seat screening room, new galleries for the exhibition of digital art, and a multi-classroom education center. The expanded Museum will open to the public on January 15, 2011. For more information, visit movingimage.us
