GOODFELLAS gangster Henry Hill is to visit the North for a special screening of the movie about his life.


14:56 |


The former Mafia mobster was played by Ray Liotta in the famous 1990 gangster flick by Martin Scorsese, which told the story of how the American turned supergrass to shop some 50 fellow crooks.
Hill, now 68, was then placed into a witness protection programme giving him and his family new identities.
The one-time wiseguy, who was at the heart of some of America’s darkest Mafia circles in the 1960s and 1970s, was forced to lie low for years while his former mobster pals wanted him dead.
Now he is coming to the North for a special one-off meet-and-greet event.
Hill will join fans for a private screening of the film Goodfellas, before hosting a question and answer session.
He’ll also put on display some of the artwork he produces, and pose for photographs.

There are still mobsters who want Hill killed, and Neil Jackson, the event’s promoter, said careful discussions were held with the former gangster before arrangements were made.
Neil said: “As far as I am aware he doesn’t have a price on his head over here so we are not worried in any way about that.
“We spoke about it and he’s quite confident that he’s going to be ok.
“But there will be a number of people for and against the event because of that. It will stir different emotions in some people.
“Some people will want to learn more about him and listen to his stories, but some people probably will think he’s a grass and won’t want anything to do with him.
“Whichever way you look at it, I think it’s a fascinating story.”
A venue for the event, to be held on October 26, is yet to be finalised but the Star and Shadow cinema in Byker, Newcastle, is earmarked for the screening.
Twenty one years to the day since Goodfellas was released in Britain, the discreet event will be Hill’s first visit to the North and his only UK appearance.
Tickets are priced at £90 and include the screening, Q&A session and photograph.
