The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today that they will host An Evening with Tom Cruise on Monday, December 17th, taking a look at some of Cruise’s most iconic character work in a conversation with moderator and New York Film Festival Director of Programming, Kent Jones.
The event will be followed by a sneak preview screening of Cruise’s new film JACK REACHER, in which he plays a tough ex-military investigator out for justice – a character that audiences have come to love from the three-time Academy Award® nominated actor. Tickets are $50 and $35 and all proceeds from the event will go to the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 50th Anniversary Fund, which supports the new education program and emerging filmmaker initiatives. Tickets go on sale Monday, December 10th. The event will be held at the Rose Theater, (5th floor of the Time Warner Center, Broadway and 60th street).
Tom’s body of work is defined by the bold characters he plays so brilliantly and his collaborations with filmmaking’s most venerable directors. Tom consistently chooses smart and exciting projects and we are pleased to present audiences with a first look at his newest role, Jack Reacher,” said FSLC Executive Director Rose Kuo. “We are honored to host this exciting evening and to support our 50th anniversary fund to benefit education and emerging artists.”
An Evening with Tom Cruise will kick off a film retrospective that reunites fans with a selection of Cruise’s most beloved characters. The retrospective, ALL THE RIGHT MOVES: THE FILMS OF Tom Cruise runs December 18-20th and will include a seven-film tribute to some of his most extraordinary work: BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY, JERRY MAGUIRE, THE LAST SAMURAI, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, RAIN MAN, RISKY BUSINESS and TOP GUN.
“It’s incredibly fortunate that the Film Society chose the opening week of JACK REACHER to pay tribute to Tom’s incredible talent and accomplishments” said the film’s director Christopher McQuarrie. “I’ve had the great luck to find myself working with an incomparable actor in this extraordinary role at the peak of an unparalleled career.”
Tickets for the Monday, December 17th conversation and Jack Reacher screening will be available beginning Monday, December 10th. The event will be held at the Rose Theater, on the 5th floor of the Time Warner Center (Broadway and 60th street).
