Sold Out: The 25th Anniversary of Casino: Looking Back with Nicholas Pileggi (Joining Virtually) and Oscar Goodman
The 1995 film Casino is consistently ranked among the greatest Mob movies of all time. Its fictional depictions of true events in Las Vegas in the 1970s and ’80s evoke nostalgic memories for longtime locals and impassioned debate among history buffs. On the 25th anniversary of Casino, screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi, former Mob defense attorney Oscar Goodman and special guests will discuss the making of the classic movie and its impact on Las Vegas.
This program will be held in The Mob Museum’s Historic Courtroom. Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi will participate via videoconference. Oscar Goodman, who played himself in the film, will participate in person.
This program is now sold out.
Limited capacity. Reservations required.
In addition to this exciting event, the Museum will debut a limited-time, temporary exhibit on November 13 featuring artifacts, memorabilia and rare photographs from the movie. The exhibit will display an array of movie props linked to the Tangiers hotel-casino, the fictional stand-in for the real-life Stardust on the Las Vegas Strip. Other artifacts include an original script donated by Frank Cullotta, the late Chicago mobster who served as a consultant to Scorsese and also played a hitman in the film; rare photographs from the set donated by former Mob defense attorney Oscar Goodman, who played himself in the movie; prop newspapers printed in Las Vegas for use in the movie; and more. This exhibit will be located on the Museum’s first floor and will be on display until November 14, 2021.
