Cinema Rediscovered: Midnight Cowboy
Screenings- 26th September 2023 - 6:15 PM
Cinema Rediscovered presents the classic Midnight Cowboy (1969), starring Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman.
Two men hustle their way through 1960s New York in this bittersweet classic of New Hollywood. Restored in 4K.
Noted today for the now legendary performances of Jon Voight as country boy turned would-be male prostitute Joe Buck and Dustin Hoffman as down-at-heel con-man Ratso Rizzo, Midnight Cowboy is widely celebrated as one of the most ground-breaking American films of the late 1960s.
Reflecting the challenging material the production team put on screen, Midnight Cowboy also became the first film rated X in America to win an Oscar for Best Picture. Add Harry Nilsson’s top 10 version of the song ‘Everybody’s Talkin’’ to this and you have something of an all-time classic.
