TV icon Mary Tyler Moore passed away last Wednesday in Connecticut at 80 years old, and the world is heartbroken.
Diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 33, she lived a long life and triumphed over many challenges.
If you want more Mary beyond The Dick Van Dyke Show reruns that are like unicorns on the cable channels, the Paley Center will pay tribute to the star with free screenings.
Which means more reruns, but also more original roles.
Johnny Staccato and her namesake series was on the silver screen January 28th and 29th, and also February 4th and 5th in the Paley Center in New York City.
We hope that these viewings can help ease the pain of losing our "Princess of Sitcoms." Entry is free for those who wish to attend at the The Paley Center for Media in New York at 25th West 52nd Street (Between 5th and 6th Avenues), NYC.
