Movie Mindset Presents: Rio Bravo - 35MM
Western, Drama | 1959 | 141MIN
If Rio Bravo—a formative work for (naming just a few) Jean-Luc Godard, John Carpenter, and Quentin Tarantino—requires little introduction, it’s still a special occasion to host New York’s first 35mm screening in some years. (An especially rare opportunity after the recent 4K restoration.) Whether it’s revisiting an old favorite or chance to discover Howard Hawks’ masterwork—and perhaps the era’s greatest western, couching a genre plot within the absolute prototype of “hangout movie” led by an eclectic ensemble of John Wayne, Dean Martin, Angie Dickinson, Ricky Nelson, and Walter Brennan––this is the summer movie season’s true event.
Will Menaker and Hesse Deni from Chapo Trap House’s film mini-series Movie Mindset are proud to introduce this 35mm print of Rio Bravo with a talkback afterwards on Sat 9/2!
