Just in time for Flashback Friday. 

If you're over superhero sagas or Jenifer Lawrence Oscar-bait, and are itching to relive the classics, you're in luck. 

For just two days only, with two showings per day, the Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies TCM Big Screen Classics series will be showing On the Waterfront, the 1954 film that brought us famous lines such as "I could've been a contender. I could've been somebody". 

Aside from providing one of the most quoted lines of dialogue in Hollywood history, the film was also the second collaboration between Marlon Brando and acclaimed director, Elia Kazan. 

Their first collaborative effort was on Streetcar Named Desire, another highly influential and quotable film ("STELLAAAAA!")

On the Waterfront made quite a splash when it premiered (PUNS). 

The film was loosely based on longshoreman Anthony DeVincenzo, who received a lot of backlash after bringing the corruption he experienced on the Hoboken docks to the attention of the Waterfront Commission. 

He ended up suing Columbia Pictures for their representation of these events. 



Despite this, the film went on to become one of the most well-known and well-loved. 


You can catch it in NYC on Sunday April 24th and Wednesday April 27th at Empire 25 in Times Square and Union Square 14. Grab tickets here!
