More Info IMDb

There is ONLY ONE MOVIE that captures the sweaty, gravel-n'-blood desperation of late '70s New York street gangs, blasting open the seedier side of youth culture with a rampaging action adventure like nothing else you'll ever see. And that American goddamn classic is clearly THE WARRIORS. We don't even need to tell you the plot of the movie, but we will anyway because just writing about it gets us PUMPED. A powerful underworld leader calls a summit of every gang in New York, but is brutally assassinated before he can bring them together against the police. The blame is wrongly placed on iron-willed, pure-hearted Coney Island rumblers The Warriors, and they've got to run for their lives to make it home by daybreak. On their way through subway tunnels and darkened alleys, they'll face an impossible gauntlet of cops, face-painted maniacs, rollerskating switchblade slashers, spastic skinheads and countless other urban terrors. Dress up as your favorite gang, wrap a chain around your knuckles and come out and play-ee-yay with the cold-blooded gutter soldiers of the Alamo Drafthouse at this big-screen presentation of Hollywood's greatest action film of the '70s: THE WARRIORS!

Screening on 35mm film.
