Movie: “Dog Day Afternoon”

Event Details

Our start of summer entry in the “Movies that Reawaken Wonder” series features the blistering NYC classic with Q&A by Lou Lumenick, former chief film critic at New York Post.

Dog Day Afternoon is an American crime drama based on a true 1972 story, a unique bank robbery on a hot summer afternoon in New York City. Shortly before closing time, scheming loser Sonny (Al Pacino) and his slow-witted buddy, Sal (John Cazale), burst into a Brooklyn bank for what should be a run-of-the-mill robbery, but everything goes wrong, beginning with the fact that there is almost no money in the bank. The situation swiftly escalates, as Sonny and Sal take hostages; cops, media and a large crowd gathers to watch and surround the bank. Directed by Sidney Lumet. Written by Frank Pierson. 1975. 2 hours 30 minutes. Screened in DCP in English.

Sunday, June 5. Doors: 7pm, 7:30 pre-show, 8pm movie.
