Sunday 24 May 2015

S2BN Entertainment is pleased to present AN EVENING WITH PACINO, the worldwide acclaimed event, with one of cinema’s most riveting stars, for one night only in DUBLIN at the Bord Gais Energy Theatreon Sunday 24 May.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday 1 April at 9.00am from all usual Ticketmaster outlets and also through where a limited number of Meet and Greet Experience packages will be available along with a small number of VIP packages that will allow a ticket buyer an intimate experience to travel alongside Al Pacino as he tours from one European destination to another.

AN EVENING WITH PACINO marks a welcome return to Europe following a sold out night at the London Palladium in 2013 and will celebrate one of the most acclaimed careers in acting history in a theatre setting, with the actor himself, as he shares his passion for acting and directing. The evening will explore his time Off-Broadway in the ‘60s right up to the present day, and will include some never heard before stories and some never before seen clips, as well as the rare chance to speak directly with Pacino.

“I’m very excited to be presenting these special events with Al Pacino,” said Michael Cohl, “he is one of the most talented actors of all time and to see him live, in person, and to hear his stories, and watch him go in and out of his most famous characters, is truly a unique experience”.

Al Pacino has created some of the most indelible character portrayals in cinema history, starring in over forty films that include The Godfather Trilogy, Dog Day Afternoon, Serpico, Scent of a Woman, Sea of Love, Dick Tracy, Heat, Scarface, Any Given Sunday, Donnie Brasco, Angels in America and most recently You Don’t Know Jack and Phil Spector for HBO. He is an eight-time Academy Award nominee and an Oscar Award winner for his performance in Scent of a Woman. His performances for HBO have garnered Golden Globe and Emmy awards for Angels in America and You Don’t Know Jack. He is one of the rare winners of the triple crown of acting: the Oscar, Tony and Emmy Award. He is also the winner of the 2012 National Medal of Arts, AFI Life Achievement Award and American Cinematheque Award.

On one of his previous visits to Ireland, Al Pacino was invited by Trinity College Dublin to accept honorary patronage of the Philosophical Society (The Phil) and paid a visit to the University before addressing the students.  With a particular interest in former graduate Oscar Wilde, the actor took a tour around campus visiting the Books of Kells, the Old Library and the Long Room where Wilde would have studied.

With an enduring devotion to acting, Pacino has become one of film and theatre’s most honored players and one of the most famous and loved actors in the world. AN EVENING WITH PACINO is, undoubtedly, an exceptional opportunity to catch an icon in the flesh.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
