Scarface | NC Museum of Art | Special Events | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Fri., Feb. 1, 8 p.m. 2013

Brian De Palma's Scarface has been such a staple in the pop-culture consciousness that people tend to forget it's a remake. Directors Howard Hawks and Richard Rosson were the first to tackle this story of the rise and fall of a self-made gangster when they made Scarface way back in 1932. Produced by that legendary freak Howard Hughes, this gangland saga has Paul Muni in the megalomanical-mafioso lead role of Tony. Instead of Reagan-era Miami, the movie is set in the early 20th-century mobster mecca of Chicago, as Muni's egotistical, out-of-control heavy works his way up to becoming the city's major kingpin. This version may not have explosive, bloody gunfights or desks covered in mountains of cocaine, but as 1930s gangster flicks go, it's quite badass. It starts at 8 p.m.; tickets are $7, or $5 for museum members and students. Visit —Craig D. Lindsey
