Voight’s storied career was launched by Midnight Cowboy, in which he starred as a naïve Texan dishwasher who decides to make it big in New York City as a sex worker. Things don’t quite go his way once he arrives, and he strikes up an unlikely friendship with the aptly named grifter Ratso Rizzo, played by Dustin Hoffman.
Not only is this first and only X-rated flick to receive the Oscar for Best Picture (though it was later reclassified as R), Midnight Cowboy is also the source of the ultimate NYC exclamation: “I’m walkin’ here!”
$10-$15, Tue July 2, 7:30 p.m., Santikos Bijou Cinema Bistro, 4522 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 614-8977, tpr.org.
