On the Waterfront Film Festival

April 12 @ 7:00 pm

The Hoboken Historical Museum invites our community to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the release of the iconic Academy Award winning film On the Waterfront with a 2-day festival.

For the first part of the festival, HHM will be screening On the Waterfront on Friday, April 12, 2024 at 7pm at the Museum. HHM is located at 1301 Hudson Street. Admission is free. The Littleman Parking-Independence Garage (Shipyard Lane, at 12th St.) offers 3 hours of free parking with Museum validation. Please bring your ticket with you to get stamped at the Museum.

For the second part of the festival, HHM will be screening a special documentary entitled On the Waterfront Walking Tour, which features Official City Historian and born and raised legend Lenny Luizzi and the late OTW screenwriter Budd Schulberg. This event will take place on Sunday, April 14, 2024 at 4pm at the Museum, and will include a talkback with Lenny. Admission is free.

Directed by Jim Garamone, On the Waterfront Walking Tour pays tribute to the powerful film, as well as its extraordinary setting – our beloved Hoboken. Footage includes Lenny and Budd with a walking tour in Hoboken from April 2003, and provides behind the scenes info about the making of the film. Lenny asserts that On the Waterfront is a proud triumph in both cinematic and Hoboken history alike. We couldn’t agree more.

Please join us to commemorate this very special anniversary.
