Cult Movie Monday CL Recommends

When: Mon., June 25, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: Free
Director Walter Hill has long been known for directing unpretentious, red-meat fare, and 1979's The Warriors remains a fine representation of his output. Delegates from countless New York City street gangs gather in The Bronx to listen to a speech delivered by the magnetic leader of the most powerful outfit, but all hell breaks loose after he's shot and the members of the Warriors are falsely fingered for the murder. Determined to make it back to their Coney Island turf, they cautiously tread their way through an urban jungle in which every other gang is out for their blood. Highly controversial in its day — the poster stated that gang members "outnumber the cops five to one. They could run New York City," and a few screenings were disrupted by skirmishes between real gangs — this rousing piece of pulp entertainment is being presented by The Light Factory and Theatre 650 as part of the monthly Cult Movie Mondays series.
