Robert De Niro is making Bostonians an offer they wouldn’t want to refuse.

The Oscar winner is slated to host an intimate cocktail party in Boston on April 10 alongside actor-producer Chazz Palminteri.

The duo will join guests for drinks and a performance of “A Bronx Tale: The Musical,” an adaptation of Palminteri’s play of the same name, according to the Tribeca Film Institute. (De Niro directed and starred in a 1993 film version.)

“Tribeca Film Institute is thrilled to offer this exciting and unique experience to Bostonians,” the institute’s managing director, David Earls, and executive director, Amy Hobby, said in a joint statement to the Globe. “The proceeds from the event will benefit female filmmakers and filmmakers of color with grants and mentorship, which will enrich our culture for generations to come.”
