Description

THE WARRIORS 7:30 Walter Hill’s hyper-stylized actioner follows a Coney Island street gang as they make their way through 28 miles of "enemy territory" with 100,000 rival gang members hot on their trail. The universe created by Hill and cinematographer Andrew Laszlo is futuristic but its distinct ‘70s vibe makes the scenario play out like an urban nightmare. Michael Beck, James Remar, Deborah Van Vulkenberg, and David Patrick Kelly star. (1979, 92 min, DCP) + VANISHING POINT 9:15 In one of the most spectacular car chases in motion picture history, pill-popping Kowalski (played, with maximum minimum cool, by Barry Newman) sets out to prove that he can drive a super-charged Dodge Challenger from Denver to San Francisco in just fifteen hours. Director Richard Sarafian’s intoxicating thrill-ride is an offbeat mix of road action and existential drama that has earned a reverential following from today’s auteurs and the cult film crowd alike. (1971, 99 min, DCP)
