Pacino brings his brand of ‘Heat’ to our sweltering state.
“Say hello to my little friend!”
“Attica! Attica! Attica!” “I am the law!”
“You ever take a dump made you feel like you'd just slept for twelve hours?”
No doubt about it: Al Pacino is a living Hollywood legend, with an Academy Award on the mantle and his legacy in cinematic history secured.
So why, then, is he appearing next Friday night, Oct. 14 at WinStar World Casino in Thackerville? Does he owe Beverly D’Angelo several months’ child support or something?
Either way, he is, and you can be one of the 1,600 lucky people to have an audience with him. At 9 p.m. Oct. 14, Pacino will give a one-man show about his career, rife with backstage scuttlebutt and film clips. A Q-and-A will follow. If I could be there, I’d ask him about that time Ben Stiller portrayed Pacino auditioning for the kiddie film “Beethoven.” (Didn’t see it? Skip to the 7:53 mark ...)
Tickets are $85 to $150. Call 800-622-6317 or visit winstarworldcasino.com. —Rod Lott
