Be Gay Do Crime Continues with Dog Day Afternoon This Weekend!

Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA! Take to the Brooklyn thrills of Sidney Lumet’s Dog Day Afternoon, starring the inimitable Al Pacino, as part of our month-long Be Gay Do Crime series.

Based on the true story of would-be Brooklyn bank robbers John Wojtowicz and Salvatore Naturale. Sonny (Al Pacino) and Sal (John Cazale) attempt a bank heist which quickly turns sour and escalates into a hostage situation and stand-off with the police. As Sonny’s motives for the robbery are slowly revealed and things become more complicated, the heist turns into a media circus.

Winner of the 1976 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, Dog Day Afternoon thrills and shocks with the kind of glee that only the East Coast can provide.

Dog Day Afternoon screens starting Friday, June 7th.
Friday, Jun 7th – 7pm
