ASTORIA — The Museum of the Moving Image in Queens will pay tribute next month to late actor and director Philip Seymour Hoffman, with a career retrospective that will feature film screenings and in-person appearances by those who knew him.
From Sept. 16 to Oct. 6, the museum will show 15 of Hoffman's best-known works, including "Boogie Nights," "Doubt," "Magnolia," "The Master," "Almost Famous," and 2005's "Capote," which earned him an Academy Award for best actor.
Other screenings will include "Before the Devil Knows Your Dead," "Synecdoche, New York," "The Talented Mr. Ripley," and "Jack Goes Boating," which marked Hoffman's debut as a director.
"Philip Seymour Hoffman was a singular talent, an actor and director whose performances were always immersive and electrifying," the museum said in an announcement about the series.
"He was beloved in the film and theater world, and his untimely death in 2014 at age 46 took away the promise of so much great work to come," organizers said.
Some of the screenings will feature introductions by Hoffman's friends and colleagues, according to the museum. Tickets will cost $12 and are expected to go on sale this week, with an exact schedule to be announced soon here.
Hoffman, who lived in the West Village and was a regular sight in the neighborhood, died in 2014 from an accidental drug overdose.
