Movie Night

Coogan’s Bluff 2 pm; Midnight Cowboy, 5 pm. The Museum of the Moving Image hosts Fun City: New York in the Movies, 1967-75, which shows NYC-filmed flicks that tapped into the turmoil, chaos and social energies of the late 1960s and early 1970s. In Coogan’s Bluff, an Arizona deputy (Clint Eastwood) comes to town to extradite a suspect and finds himself cheated by cabbies, insulted by hookers, dissed by cops, and even attacked by his prey’s strident, vaguely Jewish mother. In Midnight Cowboy, John Voigt’s wannabe gigolo leaves Texas and winds up hustling on 42nd Street, bonded with the blighted block’s genius loci, Dustin Hoffman’s tubercular petty thief. www.movingimage.us.
