Taxi Driver To Celebrate Its 40th Anniversary in NYC!
Martin Scorcese‘s classic film “Taxi Driver” will be honored by the Tribeca Film Festival on April 21st as movie fans around the world celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film’s release.
The film, which features Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle, has withstood the test of time, and is considered one of the greatest movies of all time. In a news release, Scorcese stated,
“It’s odd to think that four decades have passed since we shot ‘Taxi Driver‘ on the streets of a very different New York City. It was made in a surge of energy, starting with Paul’s [Schrader] one-of-a-kind script, and I was working with an extraordinary group of artistic collaborators as anyone could ever hope for … I’m honored to take part in the celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.”
There will be a conversation with Scorsese, DeNiro, Jodie Foster, Cybill Shepherd and Schrader at the Beacon Theatre after the screening. Tickets go on sale March 24 at 10 AM Eastern Time at beacontheatre.com or by calling Ticketmaster at 866-858-0008.
