The Silver Screen Sports Film Festival will be a two-day celebration of the most iconic sports movies from the past five decades on Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15 at Westchester’s Tarrytown Music Hall (13 Main Street, Tarrytown, NY 10591). The five classics being screened – all consistently atop the all-time lists of both critics and fans alike – are Slap Shot, Caddyshack, Rocky, Rudy, and Major League, all followed by a special Question & Answer session with talent from each film.
The ever-popular participants in the Q & A exchanges with patrons who will discuss their memories of the timeless American film classics are: Slap Shot’s The Hanson Brothers, Michael O’Keefe (Danny Noonan) and Cindy Morgan (Lacey Underall) from Caddyshack, Burt Young (Rocky’s Paulie), Rudy Ruettiger, the Notre Dame player on which Rudy’s central character is based, and Corbin Bernsen (Major League’s Roger Dorn). Tickets are priced starting at $30, and limited VIP session tickets with the artists which consist of photo-opportunities, autographs and light food and drinks are also available.

Westchester’s intense passion for sports and immense pride in the community has sparked Jobu Media Group, which will present the film festival, to utilize the platform to fundraise for an important cause. hat in mind, it was a natural fit to utilize the platform to fundraise for an important local cause.

They partner with these outlets to get food directly to people who are hungry and serve over 300 community partners -including food pantries, soup kitchens, child and day-care centers, and shelters. Silver Screen Sports Film Festival is fundraising for the Food Bank to reach a goal of $15,000. Upon checkout online of ticket-sales there is an option to make a donation large or small, starting at $5. Raffles and other ways to donate over the course of the April 14-15 weekend extravaganza are also on the site.
