New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA—The Museum of Television & Radio will screen Spacey Presents Darin: Television Appearances of Bobby Darin Selected by Kevin Spacey, featuring performances by Bobby Darin personally chosen by Kevin Spacey, director and star of the new feature film on Darin, Beyond the Sea.

Bobby Darin, a multifaceted singer whose recordings ranged from rock to show music, was also a songwriter, Oscar-nominated actor, and popular nightclub entertainer.
