50TH ANNIVERSARY NEW DIGITAL 4K RESTORATION SCREENING
Joe Buck (John Voight), is a tall, handsome young Texan who comes to New York to hustle money out of rich women. He is befriended by a sickly, limping, lowlife con man, 'Ratso' Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), who offers to manage Joe’s career, for their mutual benefit. A unique bond develops between the unlikely duo, but the two prove no match for the urban jungle of Manhattan.
Featuring landmark performances from its two leads and an iconic John Barry soundtrack, Midnight Cowboy is a gritty yet warm story of an affectionate friendship between two drifters in a decaying late-1960s New York.
Won 3 Oscar®s, 6 BAFTAs and a Golden Globe.
