Scorsese’s “Irishman” To Play The Egyptian

Scorseses Irishman To Play The Egyptian

Martin Scorsese’s mob drama “The Irishman” will play for two weeks at the historic Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

The film will run at the complex from November 1st through 14th and is playing exclusively on the big screen for roughly three weeks before it debuts on Netflix on November 27th. Several other L.A. cinemas will likely play the pic in addition to Egyptian.

Netflix has been working on a deal to buy the famed locale from American Cinematheque, but that deal is reportedly still pending.

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci lead the 209 minute film, Scorsese’s longest narrative feature to date, which is making a major awards play. It’s also the third-highest reviewed film of the year on Metacritic with a 93/100 at the moment, behind only festival darlings “Parasite” and “Marriage Story” both on 95.
