AMC & The Film Society Of Lincoln Center To Celebrate End Of ‘Breaking Bad’

Breaking Bad "Madrigal" (Season 5 Episode 2)

The AMC network and the Film Society Of Lincoln Center plan to celebrate the final eight episodes of the hit series Breaking Bad. “It is often said that television is in the midst of a golden age, and there is no greater proof of that than Breaking Bad,” said Dennis Lim, FSLC Director of Cinematheque Programming. “As this most cinematic of shows draws to a close, it seemed more than appropriate for the Film Society to pay tribute to its achievements by presenting every episode to date on the big screen. We are also thrilled to welcome Vince Gilligan and his collaborators to the Walter Reade stage to share their personal highlights from the past five seasons.”

In a weeklong celebration beginning July 26, the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center Amphitheater will host a a free five-day marathon screening of Breaking Bad’s five season catalog. The celebration will continue on August 1 and 2 with the presentation of “The Perfect Batch: Breaking Bad Cast Favorites. The event will include series Creator and Executive Producer Vince Gilligan along with ‘Breaking Bad’ stars Bryan Cranston, Anna Gunn, Betsy Brandt, RJ Mitte and Bob Odenkirk, who will all take part in a panel presentation to talk about their favorite episodes and answer questions. The event will take place at the Walter Reade Theater. A complete schedule and ticket information will be announced later this month. The Q&A session is scheduled to air live on Filmlinc.com. AMC will also make the panel discussion available on their website, amc.com, following the event.

The final eight episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’ will kick off on AMC, August 11 at 9pm est.
