The 1984 Ron Howard-directed romantic comedy that finds Tom Hanks falling for a mermaid played by Daryl Hannah is the featured attraction at tonight’s free outdoor Tribeca Film Festival screening. Now 30 years old, the film does seem a day over 10. Those who come early can catch Tails of Glory (the award-winning dancers from the Coney Island Mermaid Parade) performing an homage to cinema. Food trucks are also going to be parked nearby, for those who want to feast.
