30th Anniversary Screenings!
Dir. Robert De Niro. 1993, 120 mins. 35mm. With Robert De Niro, Chazz Palminteri, Lillo Brancato Jr., Taral Hicks, Kathrine Narducci. De Niro’s first and to-date only directorial effort is an adaptation of screenwriter and co-star Chazz Palminteri’s autobiographical one-man stage show about growing up in 1960s New York. De Niro plays a principled bus driver who watches his son, Calogero, aka “C” (Brancato Jr.), become enamored with, and later employed by, local crime boss Sonny (Palminteri in a career-making performance). Caught between two father figures and barreling toward a point of no return, “C” is forced to grow up quickly and determine the kind of life he wants to lead. Though obviously set in the Bronx, much of the film was shot on location in Astoria; keep an eye out for numerous still-extant neighborhood landmarks and storefronts.
October 8 only, the feature will be preceded by:
Dir. Neha Gautam. 2023, 18 mins. A young Pakistani girl from Queens, New York, finds her relationship to her father shifting as his taxi business starts to decline with the rise of ride-share apps.
