Fall in love with The Deuce again this February 10th for a Valentine’s Day date at Times Square’s eponymous Times Square Theatre (along the northside of 42nd) and Larry Cohen’s little-seen and rarely screened DEADLY ILLUSION! Sure it’s a Christmas flick – but we weren’t back in business yet! Besides – there’s romance afoot when Billy Dee Williams’ womanizing NYC gumshoe proves to be stuck on his girl-Friday, Vanity! Plus, Cohen makes some jaw-dropping Hitchcock-level use of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree!! See it with someone you love – see it with The Deuce!
