Friday Night Flix “Midnight Cowboy”

March 31 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

FREE!

“New York City in the 1960s” is the theme for March at the Belfast Free Library’s “Friday Night Flix” film series. The month features four critically acclaimed films from a decade where New York City was a prime locale for moviemaking. All the movies are free and take place at 7pm in the Abbott Room.

Rounding out the month on March 31st is Midnight Cowboy (1969) A naïve Texas greenhorn travels to New York City in hopes of making it big as a gigolo. Unfortunately, he’s outhustled by the very people he’s trying to hustle. Out of desperation he befriends a sickly, down and out con man, named Ratso Rizzo who lives in a condemned building. These two outcasts, played by Dustin Hoffman and John Voight, form a seedy partnership that transforms into a deep, abiding friendship. This movie was nominated for 7 Academy Awards and took home the Oscar for Best Picture.
