Your Sunday morning best of Londonist weekly round-up, sponsored this week by BFI Southbank.
Hoffman season continues at BFI Southbank
This year marks Hollywood legend Dustin Hoffman’s 80th birthday — join in the party by watching some of his biggest blockbusters at BFI Southbank.
Dustin Hoffman helped pave the way for a new generation of Hollywood leading men in the late '60s. The BFI completes its celebratory season with films from the latter part of his career. Highlights include classics like Rain Man, Marathon Man and Tootsie.
Don’t miss the chance to see The Graduate — as the film reaches its 50th anniversary, BFI are delighted to screen this newly restored 4K digital print. No film has done quite so much for middle-aged sex appeal than the 1967 hit as Anne Bancroft plays the original cougar, Mrs Robinson.
Witness the master at work for yourself with the BFI Southbank’s Hoffman season. Full line-up can be found here.
