Mean Streets: openluchtvoorstelling
Martin Scorsese broke through internationally with this raw and realistic portrayal of the dreary lives of petty criminals Charlie (Harvey Keitel) and Johnny Boy (Robert De Niro) in the derelict New York of the early 1970s.
On 1 September at 21.00 EYE presents an open-air screening of Mean Streets in the field on IJ”s bank west of the museum building. Tickets are sold at €5 (cash only), which includes a set of headphones and a chair. The site will be open from 20.30. It is not possible to reserve seats or buy tickets online. There is no bar, but you are free to bring your own drinks and food (please put any rubbish in the containers).
In the summer of 2017, Eye staged an exhibition devoted to one of the most important American film directors of the past half-century: Martin Scorsese. Over the years, the director of such classics as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and The Wolf of Wall Street has elaborated a uniquely personal style of filmmaking.
