MANHATTAN — Tony Montana is coming back to the big screen, nearly thirty years after audiences first said hello to his little friend.

"Scarface" will be screened in seven Manhattan theaters — and 475 cinemas across the country — when it marks its anniversary with screenings at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 31 with the "Scarface Special Event."

The movie, starring Al Pacino as the crime boss, has spawned a cult following, with devotees modeling themselves after Montana and repeating his class catchphrease, "Say hello to my little friend."

The Manhattan theaters participating in the screening are TImes Square's AMC Theaters Empire 25 42nd Street, the Upper West Side's AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13; AMC Loews Kips Bay; AMC Loews 34th Street; Chelsea's Clearview Cinemas; the Upper East Side's Clearview Cinemas at 400 East 62nd Street.; and Regal Union Square Stadium.

Fans of the crime thriller will be treated to a 20-minute bonus feature showing how the film helped to redefine the gangster genre.

NCM Fathom Events, which is organizing the screenings, could not be reached for comment.
