A Scorsese bonanza

1_multipart_xf8ff_4_scorseseportrait2_1 Perfectly timed to coincide with his upcoming Best Director victory at the Academy Awards, the Miami Beach Cinematheque has devoted its Great Directors series to Martin Scorsese in February.

1_multipart_xf8ff_5_scorsesetaxigermanla_3 The month-long retrospective begins at 8:30 p.m. Thursday with a slate of rarely-seen shorts, including 1967's notorious The Big Shave. Other films to be shown include Taxi Driver, Mean Streets, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and The Departed.

As part of the series, the MBC will also display a collection of vintage posters, photographs and publicity stills from Scorsese's films, along with 80 years' worth of Academy Awards programmes and souvenirs.

1_multipart_xf8ff_11_scorsesedepartedleo_2The celebration concludes on Oscar night, Feb. 25, with a live telecast of the award ceremonies (and, presumably, Scorsese's acceptance speech), along with cocktails, dining and silent auctions.
