The Sopranos’ 20th Anniversary Select Screenings

Saturday & Sunday, January 12 & 13, 2019, in New York
Screening Noon to 6:00 pm

From its premiere on HBO in 1999, The Sopranos represented a sea-change in the medium of television, employing all of the formal dazzle, narrative audacity, and moral complexity once associated with Hollywood’s 1970s Golden Age to tell a serialized story on the small screen. TV had come of age, taking its place in the center of the cultural conversation as David Chase’s revolutionary mobster series shattered crime and family drama conventions to create an extraordinarily rich portrait of American soul-sickness at the turn of the millennium—-and a blueprint for all of the ambitious and challenging prestige television that would follow in its legendary wake.

Two Peabody and twenty-some Primetime Emmy Awards later, The Sopranos’ legacy as a game-changing masterpiece is secure. The Paley Center celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the show’s debut with six specially selected episodes—one from each season—that demonstrate the scope of the show’s achievement, from the bleak belly laughs of the Beckett-esque “Pine Barrens” to the wrenching suspense and slow-blooming dread of “Long Term Parking” to the alternately warm and chilling father/daughter bonding (and tying up of loose ends) of “College.”

So join us, settle in…and reconnect with the Family.
