CAN YOU DIG IT?! Enjoy the essential 1979 cult-classic: THE WARRIORS in our outdoor cinema with hotdogs featuring toppings inspired by the iconic gangs of the film!
In celebration of Coney Island, home turf of THE WARRIORS and birthplace of the Modern American Frankfurter, we are offering artisanal hotdogs for purchase created by FORAGE & FLOURISH.
ABOUT THE FILM:
“From its powerhouse opening, in which all the gangs of New York gather in tribal splendour in Riverside Drive Park, to the last ditch stand in dilapidated Coney Island, Director Walter Hill has elevated his story of a novice gang on the run into a heroic epic of Arthurian dimensions, with sex as sorcery and the flick-knife as sword. Anyone expecting gritty realism will be disappointed, because Hill is offering something better: shooting entirely on NY locations at night, he has transformed the city into a phantasmagoric labyrinth of weird tribes in fantastic dress and make-up who move over (and under) the streets as untouched as troglodytes by the civilisation sleeping around them. The novice gang from Coney accidentally encounters some middle class swingers on the subway, and the two groups stare at each other like aliens from different galaxies (while the gang’s new female recruit has to be gently restrained from instinctively putting a hand up to straighten her hair). Mixing ironic humour, good music, and beautifully photographed suspense, it’s one of the best of 1979.” – Time Out (London)
