On Wednesday, March 20th, Mondo will be doing 2 screenings of a very special 4K digital restoration of TAXI DRIVER at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin, Texas. The fact that Mr. Scorsese supervised the restoration himself is impressive but going one step further, Mondo has called upon the gifted artist, Martin Ansin to do a poster for the event.
The print is extremely detailed and features troubled lead character Travis Bickle, (Robert DeNiro), walking amidst the hustle and bustle on the busy streets of New York. The gold and crimson colors work perfectly together and give this 1976 classic new life.
These beautiful prints will be sold to those in attendance and you will be limited to one print per person. (Don’t even TRY to attend the second screening for another poster, it ain’t gonna happen!) Click HERE to reserve your tickets and a chance to get this outstanding print by one of today’s best artist.
Check out the official 1976 trailer below and marvel at the announcer’s monotone, emotionless commentary. “DeNiro, he banged the drum slowly. The critics called him a brilliant new talent. After Mean Streets they said he was a genius. For his performance in the Godfather Part II they gave him the academy award.“
