Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
The Lone Star Film Society (LSFS) and Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth will screen Martin Scorsese’s RAGING BULL as part of the 2015 ArthouseFW spring schedule. Dr. Joan McGettigan will introduce the film and lead a discussion following the screening.
With a big leap in his career as the director of the Roger Corman-produced BOXCAR BERTHA (1972), Martin Scorsese polished his style and turned around to create his breakout film MEAN STREETS (1973) the following year. The film would begin a long time collaboration between Scorsese and Robert De Niro, which reached a pinnacle in the 1980 film RAGING BULL. Following Jake LaMotta (Robert De Niro) as an Italian American middleweight boxer suffering from neuroses that manifest in the destruction of the world around him, Scorsese created a defining film of the decade and gave De Niro his first Best Actor Academy Award after his third nomination.
Individual screening tickets are $7 for the general public, and $5 for LSFS members and Reel People. Currently enrolled college students with a valid ID receive free admission.
Tickets and season passes are for sale at lonestarfilmsociety.com and will be available at the door beginning one hour before show time.
