Today The Cleveland International Film Festival hosted its first Day at Playhouse Square's Hanna Theatre. Festival patrons at the Hanna enjoyed screenings of the Hollywood Shorts Program, "Five Dances", "Handy" and "The Sax Man."

The Hanna Theatre opened in 1921 and went on to host such stage and film luminaries as Al Jolson, Katharine Hepbern, Henry Fonda, Ethel Barrymore, Ginger Rogers, Helen Hayes, Mary Martin and Yul Brynner.

Alan Brown, director of “Five Dances” introduced his film, as did Vincenzo Cosentino, director of “Handy.” Both filmmakers hosted a Q&A following the screenings of their work.

The day concluded with a screening of the popular film, “The Sax Man.” Todd Bemak, the executive producer, along with several members of the film’s crew, Joe Siebert, Beau Miller and John Pope were in attendance. True to form, the sax man, Maurice Reedus, Jr., played outside the Hanna Theatre.
