The Nickel presents The Driver (1978) on 16mm film

Wed 3 Jul 2024 @ 19:30 · Events

The DriverAnother pit-stop with The Nickel Cinema as they continue their season of road films with Walter Hill’s cult classic The Driver (1978). A slick, stripped back, neon soaked LA neo-noir with Ryan O’Neal as le samuouraï of the LA freeway and Bruce Dern as the psychotically determined cat to his mouse.

An influence on everybody from Michael Mann to Nicholas Winding Refn to our own Edgar Wright, The Driver is a masterwork of simplicity. Screened here in glorious 16mm.

16mm presentation. Watch the season trailer:
