Fun City: New York In the Movies

The French Connection, 2 pm; Across 110th Street, 4:30 pm. The Museum of the Moving Image hosts Fun City: New York in the Movies, 1967-75, which shows NYC-filmed flicks that tapped into the turmoil, chaos and social energies of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The French Connection’s justly celebrated car and elevated subway chase through Bensonhurst required an actual Transit Authority motorman on set and five weeks to complete. Across 110th Street is the least glamorous and most violent of Blaxploitation films with corrupt cops, ghetto hustlers and downtown mobsters.
