Screening – Interview with Q&A – Reception - Book Signing of RITA MORENO: A MEMOIR
Academy Award Winner RITA MORENO has chosen Huntington’s Cinema Arts Centre for her exclusive New York appearance, coinciding with her just-published book, RITA MORENO: A MEMOIR. Audiences will enjoy WEST SIDE STORY on the big screen, and the electrifying role which won her an Oscar, followed by an interview, Q&A, and chance to meet her personally during her book-signing reception. Moreno, the first Hispanic actress to garner an Oscar, is also the first to win Oscar, Golden Globe, Tony (for The Ritz), Grammy and multiple Emmys – as well as the Library of Congress Living Legends Award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and The National Medal of Arts, presented to her by President Obama. A force of nature and ubiquitous TV star, Moreno currently stars with Fran Drescher in Happily Divorced, following her memorable HBO hit series OZ and much more.
