Netflix will give “The Irishman” an exclusive
theatrical release for about four weeks,
providing theaters most of November to play
Martin Scorsese’s big-budget crime epic before
it lands on the streaming service.
“The Irishman” will open theatrically Nov. 1 and
begin streaming on Nov. 27, Netflix said this week.
The release plans for one of Netflix’s most
expensive films yet had been a subject of much
conjecture ever since the steaming service greenlit
Scorsese’s film. The director is one of the most
ardent proponents of cinema preservation, but
Scorsese earlier told that he signed up with Netflix
without any condition of a theatrical release.
