EVENT UPDATE: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the current Sedgwick County order that extends through August 21, our screening of Dog Day Afternoon on August 20, is postponed. We are waiting on updated information regarding public gatherings and hope to reschedule sometime this fall.
Dog Day Afternoon is a 1975 American crime drama film directed by Sidney Lumet. The film stars Al Pacino, John Cazale, Charles Durning, Chris Sarandon, Penelope Allen, James Broderick, Lance Henriksen, and Carol Kane.
The film was inspired by P. F. Kluge’s article “The Boys in the Bank” in LIFE magazine, about a similar robbery of a Brooklyn bank by John Wojtowicz and Salvatore Naturale on August 22, 1972.
Dog Day Afternoon was nominated for several Academy Awards and Golden Globe awards, and won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. In 2009, the film was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
