Can you quote ‘Scarface’ with little-to-no prompting? Does your temperature rise whenever ‘Heat’ is on TV? Do you think that ‘The Godfather’ is the best film ever (other than ‘The Godfather: Part II’)? Then we have a treat for you. Hollywood icon and legendary Oscar winner Al Pacino is bringing his world famous ‘An Evening with Pacino‘ to London for the first time ever. The superstar actor will be taking to the London Palladium stage on Sunday June 2 where he will be recounting almost five decades’ worth of stories from Broadway shows and blockbuster films. To celebrate his London show, we’ve put together some of the less obvious reasons to love the magnificent Al Pacino. Carly-Ann Clements
