On February 8, 1976, Martin Scorsese‘s Taxi Driver hit theaters across America and went on to influence filmmakers around the world.
On April 5, a special edition 35-year anniversary Blu-Ray of Taxi Driver is being released. In celebration of the event, AMC Theaters will screen 4K digital prints of the film at 8 p.m. March 19 and 22.
Let this be a public service announcement for anyone who hasn’t seen the movie: Taxi Driver is nearly unanimously a classic. Its gritty worldview, unforgettable ending, and gripping lead performance by Robert DeNiro earned the film numerous awards nominations (Best Picture, Best Actor) and wins (Palm D’Or). Jodie Foster‘s performance earned a Best Supporting Actress nomination and inspired an assassination attempt on then-president Ronald Reagan.
If that’s not enough to convince you to check this film out in theaters while you can, here’s a special trailer for the event.
