Westchester’s Tarrytown Music Hall will be hosting the Silver Screen Sports Film Festival on Saturday April 14th featuring two movie classics – Slap Shot and Rocky. Jobu Media Group unites its passion for sports and film to bring this great event to the public.
Slap Shot, a comedy film about a failing hockey team starring Paul Newman, has gained popularity since its release becoming widely regarded as a cult classic. Stars of the film who played the Hanson Brothers (Dave Hanson, Steve and Jeff Carlson) will be answering questions for attendees immediately following the screening of the film.
Classic sports drama film Rocky, based on the life of fictional boxer Rocky Balboa and starring Sylvester Stallone, will be the featured film of the festival. Burt Young who played the character Paulie will provide the follow-up question and answer session immediately after the movie’s conclusion.
Proceeds of the film festival will go to the Food Bank for Westchester. The food bank collaborates with over 300 community partners to be the largest provider of nutrition to the soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in the county. The goal of the festival is to surpass their $15,000 goal.
