Tribeca Film Festival Adds ‘Clue,’ ‘Lady and the Tramp,’ ‘Back to the Future’
The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival has added outdoor screenings of “Clue” and “Lady and the Tramp” to this year’s lineup, as part of a slate of community activities that also includes the fest’s annual street fair and sports day.
The 30th anniversary screening of cult comedy “Clue” (April 16) and the 60th anniversary screening of Disney animated film “Lady and the Tramp” (April 17) are part of the festival’s free-of-charge Tribeca Drive-In series, which also will include the premiere of “A Faster Horse” (April 18), a documentary about the Ford Mustang from “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” director David Gelb.
The family screening of “Back to the Future” (April 25) is set for the same day as the annual street fair, and takes place in the same downtown Manhattan neighborhood. The fair includes a range of activities including a backlot experience, a game arcade and performances from the casts of Broadway shows and the Rockettes. The sports day, also on April 25 and part of Tribeca’s annual programming initiative with ESPN, encompasses a range of offerings based on a wide array of sports and physical activities.
