FILM | Philip Seymour Hoffman Film Series 

Rochester-area native Philip Seymour Hoffman's passing this past February shook the film community. Hoffman's exceptionally versatile acting career spanned everything from a gay boom mic operator in "Boogie Nights" to an Oscar-winning portrayal of Truman Capote in "Capote." The Dryden Theater is holding a two-part film series entitled "A Tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman" honoring Hoffman's legacy, the first part of which is running July through August. Part one of the series includes classic Hoffman performances from "Magnolia", "Along Came Polly," and "25th Hour."

Part I of "A Tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman" continues on Wednesday, July 9, 8 p.m. with a screening of "Happiness" at the Dryden Theatre, 900 East Avenue. The film series runs every Wednesday through August 27. Admission is $8 for the general public and $6 for students and museum members. For more information, visit
