Burt Reynolds scheduled to attend Macon Film Festival

Burt Reynolds is coming to Macon next month.
The Hollywood icon is set to headline a special screening of “Deliverance” at the Douglass Theatre on July 17 as part of the 10th annual Macon Music Festival, which runs July 16-19.

Reynolds will be available for a Q&A after the movie. The special film print secured from Warner Brothers Pictures will screen at 8 p.m.

Another movie, “Sharky’s Machine,” which Reynolds directed, will be shown at 5 p.m. July 19 in the Douglass Theatre.

Reynolds, who was born in Waycross, said in a release that he loves Georgia and that most of his movies have been made in the state. For example, several chase scenes from “Smokey and the Bandit” were filmed near Jonesboro.

Reynolds said he is “very proud that the Macon Film Festival has selected two films that show two very different sides of what I call my lucky state. … I look forward to sharing these with you this summer.”

Reynolds’ professional acting career began in 1958, and through the years he appeared in dozens of movies and television shows. Among them, Reynolds starred alongside Dolly Parton as Sheriff Ed Earl Dodd in the 1982 musical “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” and in “Stroker Ace,” he starred as the title character with his future wife, Loni Anderson. Later in his career, Reynolds brought star power to the TV comedy “Evening Shade.”

Julie Wilkerson, the Macon Film Festival’s president, said screening “Deliverance” with Reynolds at the 10th festival celebrates a Georgia film, brings a celebrity to Macon and pays homage to the first Macon Film Festival, where “Deliverance” also was screened.

“‘Deliverance’ was also the first special screening at the 2006 Macon Film Festival, so showing it this year brings us full circle,” Wilkerson said.

Passes for the festival are available on the festival’s website: http://www.maconfilmfestival.com. Tickets are $10 for single blocks (Single block tickets do not provide admission to special screenings); $25 for one-day passes; $75 for screening passes, valid all four days; and $150 for all-access passes that include admission to all screenings.

Burt Reynolds Tells About His Upcoming Memoir

In his memoir But Enough About Me, Burt Reynolds tells about his life and and his famous loves, including Dinah Shore, Sally Field and ex-wife Loni Anderson.

“I wanted to set the record straight,” Reynolds, 79, tells PEOPLE about his book, out this fall. “Not only about my relationships with Dinah, Sally and Loni, but also about the things that people don’t know about me.”

There’s a lot more to the star of Deliverance, Smokey and the Bandit and, more recently, Boogie Nights, than a ’70s sex symbol famous for his 1972 nude centerfold in Cosmopolitan.

Such as? “My art, my music, my teaching [and] my time in New York studying with the Actor’s Studio,” says Reynolds.

“Along the way,” he says, “I talk about marching for equal rights with Ossie Davis and Dr. King, going to prison with Jimmy Carter, to Europe with [British actress] Lesley-Anne Down and Clint Eastwood [and] saying ‘No!’ to Queen Elizabeth.”

Turns out back in 2008, after Reynolds starred in A Bunch of Amateurs – a movie about a washed-up actor (Reynolds) who arrives in a small British town to play King Lear – the Queen picked the movie for a special screening and invited the actor. He turned down the invitation, which caused an uproar.

“I’ve turned down queens before!” Reynolds jokes.

For more on that story, plus all the details on Reynolds more than 60 years in show business, fans must wait until his memoir, published by Penguin Random House, comes out in November.
