Looking far younger than his years, Lloyd, 82, showed off his cool styled in a blue suit that was matched with a black dress shirt and shoes.

The legendary Taxi star would strike a number of poses solo and alongside his wife of nearly five years. 

Loiacono, 51, looked lovely in a light brown floral dress that featured rich colors of green and red with its rose patterns.  

The real estate agent with Sotheby’s International Reality stepped out in black heels, and her dark tresses styled long and flowing well past her shoulders with a part on the slight left.

Written by Oscar-winner William Monahan (The Departed and The Gambler), The Tender Bar is an adaptation of Pulitzer Prize winner J.R. Moehringer’s bestselling memoir of the same name.

It tells the story of J.R. (Sheridan), a boy growing up in Long Island who seeks out father figures among the patrons at his uncle Charlie’s (Affleck) bar, according to Deadline.

As his mother (Rabe) struggles to provide her son with opportunities denied to her, and to leave the rundown home of her father (Lloyd), J.R. begins to pursue his romantic and professional dreams.
