Fun with Flix in the Big Apple over the next week

As a promise in an earlier posting today, I'm going to start posting schedules for genre-related cinema entertainment around NYC. I thought Thursday would be a great idea to post on,but as it turns out the Clearview Chelsea(260 W 23rd St between 7th and 8th ave)shows Chelsea Classics. For $7.50, you get a classic movie at 7 an 9:30 every Thursday night. So I'm going to have to start posting on Wednesday. Tonight is a fuckin' spectacular too. Muthafuckin' Foxy Brown(1974). I might have to go catch the 9:30 PM just for the chance to see it on the screen.

So to start it off, here is what we have for cinematic awesomeness going on over the next week:

The Warriors(1979)93 min. March 27th at 9:00 PM, 92Y Tribeca 200 Hudson st at Canal St.
I Say."One of the best 70's gang movies ever! Fuck that! One of the best movies ever. If you really need a description you probably grew up in a closet eating cat food."

Videodrome(1983)87 minutes-March 27th and 38th at Midnight.IFC Film Center 323 Sixth Ave at Waverly Pl.
IMDB says "Sleazy lowlife cable TV operator Max Renn discovers a snuff broadcast called "Videodrome." But it is more than a TV show--it's an experiment that uses regular TV transmissions to permanently alter the viewer's perceptions by giving them brain damage. Max is caught in the middle of the forces that created "Videodrome" and the forces that want to control it, his body itself turning into the ultimate weapon to fight this global conspiracy. Written by Serdar Yegulalp {}"

Vampyr(1932)70 min. March 31st at 6:50 and 9:15 PM 30 Lafeyette Ave at Flatbush St, Brooklyn
IMDB says-"oung traveller Allan Grey arrives in a remote castle and starts seeing weird, inexplicable sights (a man whose shadow has a life of its own, a mysterious scythe-bearing figure tolling a bell, a terrifying dream of his own burial). Things come to a head when one of the daughters of the lord of the castle succumbs to anaemia - or is it something more sinister? Written by Michael Brooke {}"

Now I have to figure out whether I'm going to see Foxy Brown tonight or The Warriors tomorrow.
