The historic Dryden Theatre at the Eastman House has begun an expansive film series to honor the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.  The Academy-Award-winning Fairport native died of a drug overdose in February.
The Dryden's tribute series began with "Boogie Nights" last Wednesday and ends in October with "The Master."  Those who chose the many films in between say they want audiences to see the actor's range.  Caroline Yeager, the Film Programmer at Dryden, said, "He had a 23 year career, it should have been a lot longer, we all hoped it would be, but he had such variety."

The film series continues at 8pm tonight with the movie "Happiness."
