:::CAN YOU DIG IT?!: The Warriors Midnight Screenings @ Landmark Sunshine (NYC) 5/22-5/24:::
If you ain't up on Landmark's Sunshine Cinema's Sunshine At Midnight series, you're sleepin'. Every month, the Landmark Sunshine (located in the East Village) hosts this on-going series of midnight screenings featuring some of the dopest cult flicks of the past few decades. May 22-24 will feature Walter Hill's 1979 cult classic The Warriors. I must have seen this flick a million times throughout the course of my life. I can recite entire scenes verbatim. Creepy, I know. But this film, in some latent fashion, fueled my interest in moving to NYC. Even though Giuliani's Quality Of Life campaign pretty much sprayed antiseptic on the skid row factor of the city, this film is a great cinematic document of a city in the throes of a beautiful decay with splashes of gang culture and graffiti. I try to see it at least once a year on the big screen. The experience is unparalleled. Tix are only $9, but as with any cult classic...seats may be sold out in advance.
