Michelle Pfeiffer will be recognized for her work in Hollywood at this year’s CinemaCon, where she’ll accept the 2012 Cinema Icon Award. The annual theater owners’ convention is historically where studios reveal their summer movie lineups; Pfeiffer’s award will be presented during the final night dinner.
“Michelle Pfeiffer is truly one of the film industry’s great leading ladies,” said Mitch Neuhauser, the managing director of CinemaCon. The actress’ 2012 films include “Dark Shadows,” in which she stars alongside Johnny Depp, and “People Like Us.”
CinemaCon takes place between April 23 and April 26 at Las Vegas’ famed Caesars Palace.
