SCORSESE SERIES SCHEDULEReading Cinemas Rohnert ParkEvery Wednesday in March
TAXI DRIVER (1976)MARCH 4 @ 7PMSuffering from insomnia, disturbed loner Travis Bickle (Robert De Niro) takes a job as a New York City cabbie, haunting the streets nightly, growing increasingly detached from reality as he dreams of cleaning up the filthy city. When Travis meets pretty campaign worker Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), he becomes obsessed with the idea of saving the world, first plotting to assassinate a presidential candidate, then directing his attentions toward rescuing 12-year-old prostitute Iris (Jodie Foster). (113min, R)
RAGING BULL (1980)MARCH 11 @ 7PMArguably Martin Scorsese’s and Robert De Niro’s finest film about the life of boxer Jake LaMotta, whose violence and temper that led him to the top in the ring destroyed his life outside of it. De Niro took home his second Oscar for Best Actor. (129min, R)
GOODFELLAS (1990)MARCH 18 @ 7PMMartin Scorsese explores the life of organized crime with his gritty, kinetic adaptation of Nicolas Pileggi’s best-selling book Wiseguy, the true-life account of mobster and FBI informant Henry Hill. Directed and co-written by Martin Scorsese, it was chosen as 1990’s Best Picture by the New York, Los Angeles, and National Societies of Film Critics and named to the American Film Institute’s Top 100 American Films List. Electrifying performances abound, from a standout cast that includes Robert DeNiro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco Paul Sorvino and Joe Pesci, who earned a best Supporting Actor Academy Award for his performance. (148min, R)
CASINO (1995)MARCH 25 @ 7PMRobert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, and Golden Globe winner Sharon Stone star in director Martin Scorsese’s riveting look at how blind ambition, white-hot passion, and 24-karat greed toppled an empire. Las Vegas 1973 is the setting for this fact-based story about the Mob’s multimillion-dollar casino operation – where fortunes and lives were made and lost with a roll of the dice. (178min, R)
