FilmForum Presents: MIDNIGHT COWBOY

June 26 - 29, 2023 - Starting @1:20, 3:45, 6:10, 8:35pm

(1969) “Everybody’s talking” at cowboy-geared, straight-from-the-sticks stud wannabe Jon Voight, while seedy tenement squatter Dustin Hoffman is “walkin’ here” as he storms at a pushy cab driver; but they form their alliance within the grubby underside of Times Square. Oscars® for Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay (by Waldo Salt, based on Leo Herlihy’s 1965 novel), among seven nominations. Whether you’ve seen the film before or not — it’s a revelation for Schlesinger’s no-holds-barred visualization of the demi-monde that was late ‘60s NYC, and the knockout performances by Hoffman and Voight, ably supported by Brenda Vaccaro, Sylvia Miles, Bob Balaban, and Viva—4 K DCP restoration.
