SCREENING

The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

Ongoing

Dir. Joseph Sargent. 1974, 104 mins. 35mm. With Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, Martin Balsam, Hector Elizondo. Just before leaving office, Mayor Lindsay gave permission for this hijacking thriller, a disaster flick set in the New York subways, to be filmed on location—mainly in the tunnel of the abandoned Court Street station in Brooklyn and outside the subway entrance on 28th Street and Park Avenue South. The mayor is a character but the movie is stolen by Lower East Side born Walter Matthau’s jaundiced police inspector.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
