Meanwhile, in Rochester, a film series honoring Fairport native and actor Philip Seymour Hoffman wrapped up on Sunday.

The final showing in the six-movie weekend long series was the film "Doubt."

The theatre said they wanted to run films that showcased the broad range of Hoffman's talents.

Tickets were $5 with 100% of the proceeds going to Dreamyard, an organization in the Bronx that uses art to inspire the youth. Hoffman was a board member with the organization.

Theatre-goers said it was important for them to be here this weekend.

"It was very emotional. I wish he was still around," said Carol Guttman of Irondequoit. "I'm sad that he's dead because I really like his work and I feel like I'm just getting in touch with how great he was."

"He was a fantastic actor," said Mark Woodhams, of East Rochester. "Very sad the way that his life ended so it's with mixed emotions we're here to celebrate his achievements."
