Long Beach Film & Madison Theatre Honor Burt Young from Rocky

Long Beach International Film Festival and Madison Theatre honored the actor best known as Paulie from Rocky at Taste of the Oscars Sunday February 28th, for his lifetime achievement as an actor, artist and filmmaker. This was his speech right after he saw a surprise video message from Sylvester Stallone himself, congratulating Burt on the award. 

Along with Burt, 3 students from Long Beach Middle School were awarded a scholarship to attend Madison Theatre's Summer Film Intensive by winning the 5th annual LBIFF "Do A Good Deed Contest" This encourages local students in Long Beach NY to do something kind for others, and use their creativity to do so!
