Yes, Now Playing is talkin’ to you!

Join Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie in the cab this October as they take Patrons through Taxi Driver – one of Martin Scorsese’s most acclaimed films!  Is there a better way to beat insomnia than spending time with unhinged Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) as he plots to wash away politicians and pimps alike from the dirty streets of 1970s Times Square?  And will angel Cybill Shepherd, or a preteeen Jodie Foster in her first Oscar-nominated role, be the lucky girl in the backseat when all the shooting is over? Become a Patron and find out!
