This cast of one of the most iconic New York films of all time is set to reunite at this year's Tribeca Film Festival.
On April 21, the festival will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Taxi Driver by hosting an anniversary screening at the Beacon Theatre. After the screening, Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Martin Scorsese, Cybill Shepherd and Paul Schrader will participate in a special conversation about the film moderated by Kent Jones. We can only hope said panel will include numerous "You talkin' to me?" jokes directed at the moderator.
Tickets to the event will go on sale beginning March 24 at 10am on the Beacon Theatre's website or by calling Ticketmaster at 866-858-0008.
“Taxi Driver is one of the most brilliantly disturbing movies ever made, and why I chose to go into film. It's had an indelible impact on pop culture, and its performances rank among the most memorable in cinema,” said Jane Rosenthal, co-founder, Tribeca Film Festival, and Executive Chair of Tribeca Enterprises. “It's a great honor to have the original cast at the Festival and to present this masterpiece to a new generation.”
