This will be the first major tribute to the director’s work in New York and is set to run from May 25-30.

Jewison is set to attend along with Oscar winners Olympia Dukakis from Moonstruck and Lee Grant from In The Heat of The Night and The Landlord as well as others in a series of Q&As and discussions.

The director will also attend screenings of Gaily Gaily, Jesus Christ Superstar, The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming and Agnes Of God.

Lyricist Sheldon Harnick will be on hand to talk about Fiddler On The Roof and SPC co-founder Michael Barker will attend a screening of Rollerball and discuss UA and its former chairman Arthur Krim.

Programming associate Josh Strauss said: “In American mainstream movie history there is a small handful of producer-directors that can lay claim to an extraordinarily immense, eclectic, and successful body of work. There is no doubt that Norman Jewison is a prominent member of that club.

“We are delighted to present this wonderful series of films and even more thrilled to have the man himself here, in person, to talk about them.”
