Robert De Niro’s ‘Heat’ to be celebrated by The Academy

Director Christopher Nolan will moderate Q&A

Heat

The Academy will celebrate Michael Mann’s 1995 classic film “Heat,” on the big screen on Wednesday, September 7, at 7:00 p.m. at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills with a new 4K DCP restoration.  Following the screening, Oscar winners Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, four-time Oscar nominee Mann and other cast and crew will reunite in a conversation moderated by Oscar nominee Christopher Nolan.

The crew of a fierce, professional thief (De Niro) and an obsessively driven LAPD detective (Pacino) are locked in deadly opposition as they vector towards each other.

Taking inspiration from his friend, Chicago Detective Charlie Adamson – who killed Neil McCauley in a shoot-out in 1963 – Mann built a twilight vision of Los Angeles.  With its range of complex characters, epic scale action and dazzling use of the city, “Heat” is as incendiary as it was 20 years ago.
