Adapted for the screen by William Kennedy from his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Ironweed was filmed at several Albany locations and brought international attention to the Capital Region and earned Oscar nominations for both Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep.

The screening will begin at 7PM and will feature a 6:30 conversation between William Kennedy and Marion Roach.
