You’re a Big Boy Now


Introduced by J. Hoberman


Dir. Francis Ford Coppola. 1966, 96 mins. Digital projection. With Peter Kastner, Geraldine Page, Rip Torn. The first feature production to avail itself of Mayor Lindsay’s new deregulations was a manic youth comedy filmed entirely in New York by 26-year-old former Queens resident Francis Ford Coppola. Manhattan locations included Central Park, Times Square, Greenwich Village, and, in a sequence that required the mayor’s personal intervention, the 42nd Street Library. The screening will be introduced by guest curator J. Hoberman.
