Martin Scorsese Festival

 

Celebrate summer with the films of master director Martin Scorsese.  Since his 1973 landmark effort, MEAN STREETS, Scorsese has brought his distinctly Italian American perspective to bear on themes of violence, redemption, machismo and faith.  He has influenced generations of filmmakers not only through his muscular camera and combative editing style, but also through his distinctive use of popular music.  Enjoy the full range of his career with these eight unforgettable film experiences:
