During 2014, NHS celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Zorba the Greek, by hosting screenings of the re-mastered film across the country. NHS members, family and friends enjoyed this Academy Award winning film and were fortunate to have Katherine Quinn, widow of Anthony Quinn, on hand to share anecdotes and stories about her late husband’s epic performance and the impact on Zorba worldwide. NHS was pleased to screen the film in DC, Boston, Cleveland, and Los Angeles.
Close to 150 friends and local NHS members gathered to view the re-mastered version of Zorba the Greek at the Angelika theater in Fairfax, Virginia. Katherine Quinn, widow of Anthony Quinn, was in attendance to introduce the film and share anecdotes about her late husband. A reception followed the showing. The Boston and Los Angeles chapters will follow suit and are planning Zorba the Greek screening events in their areas. A big thanks to all who came out!
