Film: On the Waterfront

July 30, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Selected for their visual connection to “The Greatest Poem” –– American Art in the Robert B. Ekelund, Jr. and Mark Thornton Collection, select films in July feature New York City and its scenes of urban life.

In On the Waterfront, Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) dreams about being a prizefighter, while tending his pigeons and running errands at the docks for Johnny Friendly, a corrupt union boss. Terry witnesses a murder by two of Johnny’s thugs, and later meets the dead man’s sister and feels responsible for his death. She introduces him to Father Barry, who tries to force him to provide information for the courts that will smash the dock racketeers.

The film is non-rated, and the running time is 108 minutes. Tickets are free, and advanced registration is encouraged. Reserve your tickets below.
