Midnight Movies at 7: Warriors

Midnight Movies at 7: Screening of The Warriors


Wednesday November 13, 2013
7:00 PM
As part of an occasional series entitled “Midnight Moves at 7” (showing cult and B-movies traditionally shown at Midnight Movie houses), the library is providing a screening of The Warriors (1979). Rated R, 92 minutes.

So, who isn’t intrigued when you take a classical Greek story (Anabasis by Xenophon) and add a hoard of New York street gangs?  The Perfect mix, right?  Director Walter Hill (48 Hours, Red Heat) –– who claims that every film he has ever made is a Western (hmmmm…) –– adapted The Warriors from a novel by Sol Yurick, and turned it into a huge cult film, and arguably, his best known and remembered.

The film centers around the death of Cyrus, the leader of the most powerful gang in New York City, who is apparently killed by a gang called ‘the Warriors’ during a speech at a midnight (dare we say, ‘peace’) summit for all the area gangs.  Since they are blamed for the killing, the Warriors now have to cross rival territories in order to just reach their own 'hood.'  The film stars Michael Beck, who graces such other cult favorites as Megaforce (1982) and Xanadu (1980) and James Remar, who also starred in Drugstore Cowboy (1989).

Light refreshments will be served.

This program is made possible thanks to funding from the Friends of the Library.
