Marlon Brando rests on a dock with his legs crossed, a large boat in the background.

About 4K Film: On The Waterfront

Winner of eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor for Marlon Brando, Elia Kazan’s elegy to American corruption, redemption, and missed opportunity returns in a brand new restoration.

Brando stars as Terry Malloy, a former boxer turned longshoreman. Feeling guilt over his involvement in the death of a fellow worker, Terry finds himself increasingly isolated when he challenges the power of local union boss Johnny Friendly (Lee J. Cobb).

The screening will be introduced by film academic Ed Jackson.
