February 4-6, 2013 at the Aero Theatre
Surely one of the greatest actors working today, Robert De Niro has been delivering unforgettable performances for more than 40 years. A disciple of the Method acting of Stella Adler and Lee Strasberg, De Niro throws himself completely into his roles - he famously put on 70 lbs. to play the overweight ex-boxer Jake LaMotta in RAGING BULL (a performance that earned the actor an Academy Award). That film was directed by Martin Scorsese; over the course of two decades, the pair collaborated on eight acclaimed films. Robert De Niro has spent time directing as well (THE GOOD SHEPHERD), and supports both moviemaking and his beloved New York City by staging the annual Tribeca Film Festival.
We are thrilled to welcome Robert De Niro to the Aero Theatre! Our tribute to his legendary career will include TAXI DRIVER, MEAN STREETS, CAPE FEAR, AWAKENINGS, and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, for which the performer has earned his 7th Oscar nomination.
