Come on down to Coney Island, or in this case a super-secret location in Newcastle’s city centre, to celebrate all that’s amazing about Walter Hill’s classic The Warriors with Screenage Kicks. Kicks’ first secret screening of 2015 will be screening the cult movie about New York gangs in al its Technicolour glory within a “New York style” location, which will be revealed on the day of the event.

Hill’s film, based on Sol Yurick’s 1965 novel of the same name, initially received a negative reception when it was released in 1979 but its story of a gang who must return to their home turf after they are framed for the murder of a respected gang leader has since become a beloved classic, which has spawned multiple spinoffs and even a video game.

To add to the Warrior vibes in the air, the team behind Screenage Kicks are once again pulling out all the stops to make the experience as immersive as possible. As well as the usual fancy dress (Orphans, Lizzies, Punks, Rogues and Boppers; be adventurous!), there will be an old school NYC disco of funk, hip hop and electro, competitions and give-aways for all you hardcore Warriors out there.

Make sure you come out to plaaaaaaaay…

Screenage Kicks Presents The Warriors at a secret city centre location in Newcastle on Friday 24th July. Tickets are on sale now.
