"We've lost so many wonderful theaters in New York City in recent years, including single house theaters like the Ziegfeld and the Paris," Scorsese said in a statement. "The opportunity to recreate that singular experience at the historic Belasco Theatre is incredibly exciting. Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber, and their team at Netflix have continued to find creative ways to make this picture a special event for audiences and I'm thankful for their innovation and commitment."
"It's an immense honor for The Irishman to be welcomed to the Belasco -- an iconic and historic landmark fit for Scorsese's latest cinematic achievement," added Scott Stuber, head of Netflix Film.
