The Dryden Theatre at George Eastman House will be screening more than a dozen films as part of a series to remember Fairport native Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Hoffman was found dead inside his New York City apartment in February from an apparent drug overdose.

"Hoffman was one of the screen's most versatile, daring, and prolific actors whose performances were not only a delight to watch, but often transcended the films themselves," said Caroline Yeager, assistant curator, Moving Image Department, George Eastman House. "The Dryden is honored to be hosting a major retrospective of his work, as a way to remember a man who became one of the most revered actors in the world, yet who never forgot his roots. He was a great friend to George Eastman House, and we miss him dearly."
