Part of the series INVINCIBLE: FIVE TOUGH FILMS

Two girls run away from a mental institution and forge a relationship in the grungy wonderland of midtown New York. They soon link up with disc jockey Johnny LaGuardia (Tim Curry) and form an underground punk rock band - The Sleez Sisters - who become a hit with the city's disillusioned youth, encouraging fellow misunderstood post-pubescent girls to take on parents, authorities and the establishment. But will the Sleez Girls be torn apart ? Or will they tear themselves apart?  It's the best parts of a half-dozen great 80's films, only better. One of the first teen movies to feature predominantly punk and New Wave music, TIMES SQUARE captures the essence of post-70s New York decay, immortalizing the famous porn district that has since been transformed into a characterless mega-mall. "Go Sleaze!"
