Notoriously secluded to its streaming service — save a few theaters in New York City and Los Angeles — Netflix will be releasing a movie in theaters as Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” will be making a debut in the Coastal Empire at the Tybee Post Theater over Thanksgiving weekend.
The film, which stars Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, has gained attention for its $100 million production budget as well as the extensive de-aging technology used on the three main actors. Based on the book by Charles Brandt, “I Heard You Paint Houses,” the film follows Frank Sheeran (played by DeNiro), who is a truck driver that becomes a hitman for mobster Russell Bufalino (Pesci) and his crime family, which includes working for Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino). The movie also stars Ray Romano, Anna Paquin and Harvey Keitel.
